I wanted to make sure you saw the exciting news: last week I launched my campaign for the State House of Representatives in the 36th Legislative District!
The 36th Legislative District is one of the most progressive, dynamic and thoughtful communities in our state. But affordability issues are crushing our region and our future. Working families are struggling to pay for quality childcare and access a decent public education. And we must act now to protect our beautiful landscape from the devastating effects of climate change.
As a working mom, nonprofit executive director, and someone who has been a champion for women in leadership my entire career, I understand the impact these issues are having on people in our community.
I am a proven progressive leader who knows how to get things done.
And that’s why I am running for State House.
As the executive director of the Washington State Association for Justice, I fight to protect the rights of working people who are up against Big Pharma, Big Insurance, and unscrupulous corporations.
As the president of the National Women’s Political Caucus of Washington, I was a champion for creating pathways for women to have a seat at the table by recruiting, training, and electing more women to public office. I am proud that we built a mission to recruit more women of color to run.
As the former legislative director to Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, I’m not afraid to take on the powerful gun lobby to tackle gun violence in our community.
I’ve spent most of my career fighting to right wrongs or helping progressive champions get elected to make big changes.
I know how to fight and win.
I am excited and proud to be embarking on this journey. Thank you for being a part of it.
