BellinghamHerald.com: Snohomish County councilman will challenge Rep. Larsen
Snohomish County Councilman John Koster is looking for a rematch against U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, D-Everett.

The 58-year-old Republican announced Wednesday, Jan. 13, he'll challenge Larsen after hearing from hundreds of people by phone, e-mail and through an Internet petition asking him to run.

Koster, a former business consultant and dairy farmer, lost to Larsen in 2000 when they were both vying for the vacated seat of retiring GOP Rep. Jack Metcalf.

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
