From the Gary Gagliardi Campaign

Gary Gagliardi, running for state representative in our district, is not a typical local candidate. He is an internationally known business strategist, a multiple award-winning author, the founder of an INC. 500 company, and a graduate of Harvard's Graduate School of Business. He has authored two dozen books on competitive strategy, won book award recognition ten times, and been translated into over a dozen languages.

Prior to becoming an internationally known author and speaker, he created FourGen, a financial software company that started with three people in a tiny office on Midvale Ave and became one of the INC. 500 fastest growing companies in America with offices across the country and clients around the world. As CEO of FourGen for 13 years, Gary won the Blue Chip Quality Award, the Trendsetter Award, and was our region’s Entrepreneur of the Year finalist.

Gary is new to politics. He and his wife, Rebecca, have lived in the same house in Shoreline for over twenty-five years, but they only recently got involved in local tea parties because they are concerned about our state’s loss of private sector jobs, Olympia’s reckless spending, our failing schools, and the increasing taxation and regulation burden that is driving business out of our state.

A political independent whose family and friends are all Democrats, Gary is running on a platform he believes can bring both Democrats and Republicans together. He wants to reverse the concentration of power and spending in Olympia and get more control and money into our local communities. He is running as a Republican because he feels the incumbent Democrats in Olympia are too committed to the centralized bureaucracy to make painless, common-sense reforms.

In real life, Gary is successful in making organizations more competitive. He does this by moving power and authority away from headquarters to empower those working on the front lines. He teaches that centralizing power is costly, inefficient, and unresponsive. It creates layers of expensive bureaucracy, develops ineffective "one-size-fits-all" programs, and insulates decisions from public concerns. This inefficiency explains why Olympia is continually spending more money while we are seeing our government services, from schools to road, continually erode.
