Since 2010, Democratic Representative Steve Tharinger has been a strong progressive leader for the 24th Legislative District. Rep. Tharinger is passionate about providing affordable health care options to all Washingtonians and has been unwavering in his advocacy for innovative policies that protect the environment. Currently, he co-chairs the Joint Legislative Executive Committee on Aging and Disability and is a member of the Dementia Action Collaborative. If re-elected, Rep. Tharinger plans to prioritize community investments and creating more living wage jobs.
Rep. Tharinger is opposed by former Clallam County Commissioner and retired Coast Guard captain Republican Jim McEntire. While McEntire has public policy experience, he has run an extremely partisan campaign that places credible doubt on his ability to reach bipartisan solutions. McEntire's campaign is almost entirely centered on fiscal responsibility and opposing the "Seattle Agenda." Rep. Tharinger is the clear choice in this race.
