Life-Long Resident of Washington
John Frostad is a native-born Washingtonian who was raised in Milton and educated in the Fife School District. He has seen the growth of our community and the political winds that have changed our neighborhoods. John wants to see the needs of our community met by government that is more accountable, affordable, and responsive.
John Frostad has owned and operated his business in Washington for 20 years. He understands the challenges of our local small business owners. Too many governmental pressures are making it harder and harder to start a business. John wants to make the path to self-employment easier and give our business owners the ability to thrive.
John Frostad spent 10 years as adjunct faculty at Bastyr University and Ashmead College teaching future healthcare providers. He knows the importance of higher education to a future workforce. Public education has been failing many students. The rapid inflation of higher education standards and expense is building a wall between the young and employment. John will work to ensure we have access to affordable quality education.
John Frostad graduated from Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA and is licensed as an acupuncturist and practitioner of East Asian medicine. He has been caring for the health of those in his community for 20 years. In the last two decades, the slow collapse of insurance-provided healthcare has created increasing hurdles for both providers and patients to access even the simplest of care. John wants to make sure that government doesn’t continue to make healthcare more expensive and inaccessible.
John Frostad has seen government continually erode our freedoms and civil rights. Washington government has narrowed the liberties we enjoy over our properties, our privacy, our speech, and more. Government can ensure our health, safety, and prosperity without forfeiture of our freedoms. John Frostad wants to see reformation of government which will reinstitute the civil rights and property rights we used to enjoy.
John Frostad has been a Washington voter for 24 years. The top two candidate voting method was an improvement in our primary system, but we need much greater reform. For too long, the 49% have been given no representation. If you are a different voice in a district that always goes Democrat or Republican, you have no effective representation. John Frostad wants to see reform which allows minority representation and prefers the FairVote system.
