10th Congressional District

Statewide

Lt. Governor

State Treasurer

  • Mike Pellicciotti has served in the Washington state House representing the 30th Legislative District since 2016 and is now running for Treasurer. Pellicciotti has never accepted corporate campaign donations and has led efforts to make the Legislature's records open for public view. He also wrote the Corporate Crime Act, which increases financial penalties for corporate crimes by 100 times, and has successfully supported laws reducing property taxes.

    Pellicciotti is challenging incumbent Republican Duane Davidson. In 2016, incumbent Jim McIntire retired, leaving the seat open. Because of the crowded primary, two Republicans made it through to the general election, giving them control of the Treasurer's office for the first time since 1957. Davidson previously served as the Benton County Treasurer from 2003 to 2016. In his term, he has been a traditional Republican and has referred to the state Legislature "raiding" the Rainy Day Fund. He has also only attended 3 of 18 critical pension meetings since fall 2017.

    Pellicciotti has been a solid legislator and is the best choice in the race for Washington State Treasurer.

State Legislature

5th Legislative District

  • Evergreen Future
  • Progressive nurse Ingrid Anderson is challenging Sen. Mark Mullet in the 5th Legislative District. As a nurse, Anderson will bring an important perspective to Olympia as legislators craft a public health and economic response to the COVID-19 pandemic. If elected, Anderson would also prioritize keeping East King County affordable for working families, strengthening our K-12 education system, and balancing our state's upside-down tax code. As the mother of a son with asthma, Anderson understands the importance of protecting our clean air and will work to pass strong environmental protections for Washington.

    Mullet is a small business owner and business-oriented Democrat who has been an obstacle to progress on many issues during his eight years in Olympia. He has taken thousands of dollars from oil and coal companies and hasn't been willing to vote for critical environmental bills. We need to address climate change and salmon and orca recovery, but Mullet has shown he won't support the solutions we need. In addition, Mullet voted against addressing the gender pay gap, opposed childcare assistance for working families, and even voted to cut teacher pay.

    It's time for new leadership for the 5th Legislative District. Anderson is the clear progressive choice in this race.

19th Legislative District

  • Democratic Rep. Clint Bryson is challenging Republican Rep. Jim Walsh for the 19th Legislative District, House Position 1. Bryson is a Montesano City Council member and a third-generation electrical worker whose priorities include COVID-19 recovery, improving the health care system, especially rural hospitals, and protecting the region’s fishing, crabbing, and oyster farming industries. In addition, Bryan wants to incentivize public-private partnerships to build additional affordable housing, support trade apprenticeships alongside 2- and 4-year degrees, and foster a community-centered approach to climate action.

    Walsh is a conservative, two-term Republican who has voted against efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Washington, against prohibiting bump stocks and background checks for firearm transfers, against prohibiting sexual orientation conversion therapy on minors, and more. Walsh has emerged as one of the most inflammatory members of the state House, undermining his ability to work together to get things done.

    Also in this race is self-identified progressive Democrat Marianna Hopkins Everson. Everson is running on a platform of "universal healthcare, safe and affordable housing, fully-funded education, fair taxes, and a healthy economy with living-wage jobs." Her extensive policy ideas also include comprehensive criminal justice reform, infrastructure upgrades, protecting labor unions, and free point-of-care health care.

    While Everson is very progressive, Bryson is running a strong campaign and has earned the overwhelming support of our progressive partners in this race. Bryson is the best choice for state House.

  • Alicia Rule is challenging incumbent Republican Rep. Luanne Van Werven for the 42nd Legislative District, House Position 1 seat. Rule serves on Blaine City Council, launched and served as president of the Blaine Downtown Development Association, and owns a therapy practice. She is running on a platform that includes tackling the affordable housing crisis by building more housing, bringing more living-wage jobs to Whatcom County, and providing support and services to veterans. Her top priority in the Legislature would be to keep local families safe, healthy, and secure. Rule will support our mental health system as well as agriculture and has numerous endorsements including from local nurses and teachers.

    Van Werven is a conservative who this year voted against gun safety legislation, a much-needed Clean Fuel Standard, and prohibiting LGBTQ conversion therapy. In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Van Werven has been spending her time criticizing Gov. Inslee for keeping Washingtonians safe and promoting the initiative designed to repeal comprehensive, age-appropriate sex education.

    Rule would be a much stronger and more progressive representative than Van Werven and deserves your vote.

Other Candidates

Democrat Andrea Caupain suspended her campaign on June 29 and endorsed Salisbury but will remain on the primary ballot. Caupain is the chief executive officer of Byrd Barr Place, formerly CAMP, that helps low-income Seattleites with essential services like food, housing, and financial assistance. She suspended her campaign to focus on providing direct services to the community, saying: 

“As we’ve seen rising cases of COVID-19 and the disproportionate impacts on Black people, Indigenous people, people of color, immigrants and refugees, persons with disabilities, and people experiencing poverty, I feel my service is most urgently needed at Byrd Barr Place.”

We hope to see Caupain run for office again in the near future.

  • April Berg is running for the 44th Legislative District, House Position 2. Berg is a former small business owner who now serves as a director at the Everett School District and a planning commissioner for the City of Mill Creek. Her platform is very strong and includes ensuring workers have safe conditions and living wages, affordable child care, increasing support for early learning, and reducing disparities in graduation and discipline rates for students of color. Berg wants to support the Housing Trust Fund to build more affordable housing and reduce barriers for shelters. She has endorsed a Clean Fuel Standard and pledges to advocate for environmental justice in underrepresented communities.

    Berg is running against Democrat Anne Anderson and Republican Mark James. Anderson is the Executive Director of Victim Support Services and was previously Executive Director of the Lake Stevens Community Food Bank. Anderson is strongly pro-choice and wants to invest more in communities to help them during the economic downturn. In her Fuse interview, she stated that the police officers she works with would welcome more training if only they had the funding for it. James is a member of the Marysville City Council, veteran, and local business owner who does not have a detailed platform.

    Having a strong progressive in this seat is incredibly important, and Berg has the experience and progressive ideas to be a fantastic leader in Olympia. Berg is the best choice in this race.
