Democrat

Formerly the mayor of Shoreline, Democratic Representative Cindy Ryu was the first Korean American mayor in the country and the first to serve in the state Legislature. She is the Chair of the Community Development, Housing & Tribal Affairs Committee. In this role, Rep. Ryu has been an advocate for affordable housing, including supporting the development of tiny homes, supporting upzoning in urban areas, and proposing a bill that creates "housing opportunity zones" near high-quality transit. She has also advocated for reforms to hold law enforcement officers accountable.

Rep. Ryu is running against Diodato (Dio) Boucsieguez and Keith Smith. Boucsieguez is a member of the College Republicans at the University of Washington and is not running a competitive campaign. Smith, who also ran against Rep. Ryu in 2016, does not have a pragmatic platform and is running on a simplistic promise to make government more efficient.

Rep. Ryu is the best choice in this race.
