E-mail: kenney@aa.net

World Wide Web URL: http://www.aa.net/~kenney

Birthdate: 9-20-36

Occupation: small business owner

Education: attended Columbia Basin College, Central Washington University

Family: spouse, Larry; two stepchildren, eight children

Endorsements:
Washington State NOW (National Organization for Women), Washington State Labor Council, King and Pierce County Democratic Parties, Washington State Young Democrats

Why are you running for this office?
The Secretary of State influences voter education, registration and international trade and jobs. The potential can't be maximized with someone in his 16th or 20th year in office. We can be a national leader in the electoral participation, and promote jobs, but we must have fresh vision and energy.

What will be your top three priorities if elected?
1. bring in more jobs, training and retraining
2. more access through vote by mail
3. teach children to be as excited about voting as they are about driving

Why are you running for this office?
During the last 42 months, we have registered one million Washington citizens to vote. I want to make sure these folks now receive the best voter information possible and that they participate and vote.

What will be your top three priorities if elected?
1. involve all Washingtonians in our political process
2. expand our economy, jobs through world trade development
3. continue to serve the public well through an open and efficient office
