Creating Economic Opportunity


Marcus is committed to creating good-paying jobs for men and women in Spokane.  This means investing in strategic industries like biomedicine and aerospace to attract hi-tech jobs and keep Spokane on the cutting edge of innovation. It also means increasing access to the higher education and workforce training people need to excel in the jobs of the future, and keeping college affordable so that we are not pricing students out of their education. As the prime sponsor of legislation paving the way for the WSU medical school and a staunch advocate for job creation and higher education, Marcus has been keeping these priorities front and center in Olympia. And it’s not just the number of jobs that matters—Marcus will continue to fight for fairness in the workplace to ensure that the jobs created and protected in Spokane offer the lasting economic security we need to thrive.
