Remembering the Fallen

Rep. Chandler speaking on Memorial DayFriends,

Freedom has to be earned. It doesn’t just happen.

This is something we always need to keep in mind, especially when we remember events such as the 70th Anniversary of D-Day this week; no other battle exemplifies so well the courage of our soldiers and how their actions shaped the world.

Last Monday I was honored to be the keynote speaker for the Memorial Day ceremony at the Lower Valley Memorial Gardens in Sunnyside. It was exciting to see so many people out there to honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.

It’s in moments like these when everything is put into perspective again.

I hope you were able to take time on Memorial Day to remember the sacrifice our nation’s military and their families.

The 2014 Campaign Begins

I’m pleased to announce that last month I filed to run for re-election. I’m excited to once again have the opportunity to serve you as State Representative for the 15th District.

I’m especially looking forward to working more on shaping our budget process during next year’s full-length legislative session. As the House Republican’s lead budget negotiator, I have been focused on using existing tax dollars more wisely without increasing what government takes from the people.

Unfortunately it’s an uphill battle, which is why I’m running for re-election to continue the effort, and also why I am actively helping to support other candidates across our state who could help create a majority of legislators who believe in smaller, more effective government.

I hope I can count on your continuing support during this election cycle. You can follow my campaign and sign up to volunteer or donate here on my website,

All my best,
