We, the undersigned, declare our firm belief that it is in the best interest of our state of Washington and our country that Paul Kautzman seek public elected office. Paul is a Government and Politics teacher at Mt. Spokane High School of the highest quality. He is someone who genuinely cares about the subject he teaches, and has had a chance to study the workings of our government for many years. He has inspired even the most apathetic of students to take part in and take ownership of their government. In this way, he is uniquely qualified for office. Our state is in need of more public officials with the integrity and all around "good guy" qualities of Paul Kautzman. We believe he would make an excellent servant of the people. We pledge to fully support and endorse his future political career, and we encourage him to do what he knows he wants to do -- run!
