    Vote Mantenido por un futuro climático sostenible

  • Esta primavera, los demócratas en Olympia aprobaron el Proyecto de Ley Sustituto Ampliado del Senado 5974, que incluía un pequeño aumento en los impuestos al combustible de los aviones. Este cambio recaudaría un estimado de $14 millones en ingresos públicos y ayudaría a nuestro estado a alcanzar sus objetivos climáticos. 
     
    Este proyecto de ley fue patrocinado por algunos de los legisladores más progresistas de Washington y aprobado con una clara mayoría en la sesión. La legislación ayudará a nuestro estado a crear un futuro sostenible donde las generaciones puedan prosperar con aire y agua limpios.

    Vote Mantenido para las protecciones de los trabajadores de viajes compartidos

  • En la última sesión, los legisladores aprobaron el Proyecto de Ley Sustituto Ampliado de la Cámara de Representantes 2076 que aumenta las protecciones y los derechos de los trabajadores para los conductores de viajes compartidos. 

    La legislación, que tuvo apoyo bipartidista, requiere que las compañías de viajes compartidos paguen a sus conductores una cantidad mínima por viaje, ofrezcan licencia por enfermedad pagada y otorguen beneficios de compensación. Es un paso positivo en la dirección de proteger los derechos de los trabajadores en la creciente economía del trabajo ocasional para que todos podamos pagar lo básico, ser tratados de manera justa en nuestro lugar de trabajo y tener la oportunidad de tener éxito.

  • La senadora Patty Murray ha sido una voz progresista consistente y fuerte en el Senado de los Estados Unidos. Ella está buscando la reelección para continuar luchando por nuestros derechos básicos y una mejor calidad de vida en Washington y más allá. 
     
    Murray fue elegida por primera vez en 1992 y ha sido una defensora de los veteranos, las familias trabajadoras, las mujeres y las oportunidades económicas para todos. Antes de su permanencia en el Senado, Murray trabajó como maestra de preescolar, en la Junta Escolar de Shoreline y en el Senado del estado de Washington.
     
    Durante su tiempo en el Congreso, la Senadora Murray ha trabajado arduamente para mantener a nuestras comunidades a salvo de la violencia armada, proteger el acceso al aborto a nivel federal para que todos tengan libertad reproductiva y ampliar el acceso al cuidado infantil asequible. Este año, votó a favor de la Ley de Protección de la Salud de la Mujer, la Ley de Libertad de Voto y una lista de otros proyectos de ley progresistas que invierten en comunidades trabajadoras para que nuestro país sea un lugar donde todos puedan prosperar. Murray se ha ganado una impresionante y diversa coalición de respaldos de organizaciones locales y nacionales, líderes electos y sindicatos.
     
    La senadora Murray se enfrenta a Tiffany Smiley, una enfermera de triaje que se postula en una plataforma republicana de MAGA. Smiley nunca ha ocupado un cargo público, pero anteriormente trabajó en Capitol Hill. Su agenda inspirada en Trump apunta a dividirnos mientras busca recortar los fondos de nuestros servicios más esenciales y reutilizarlos para un muro fronterizo innecesario y fuerzas policiales más militarizadas. Los trabajadores de Washington necesitan soluciones reales para que podamos acceder a lo básico como gasolina, comestibles, alquiler y medicamentos recetados, no a la retórica MAGA y las exenciones fiscales para los ricos.
     
    La senadora Patty Murray es una líder nacional en muchos de los problemas más importantes que enfrenta nuestro país. Ella se ha ganado su voto para la reelección.

Congreso

Depending on where you live, you may have one of the below congressional districts on your ballot.

  • Rep. Suzan DelBene is running for re-election to the U.S. House representing Washington’s 1st Congressional District. Since first being elected in 2012, DelBene has been a champion for working families, small businesses, and data privacy and consumer protections. This year, she served as the chair of the moderate New Democrat Coalition, a 98-member congressional caucus that seeks to find solutions that bring Democrats and Republicans together. She brings private sector experience from her background in tech, working at Microsoft early on and then leading a number of local startups.

    DelBene has been a staunch advocate for bills to help Washingtonians and the rest of our country afford stable housing, find family-wage jobs, and access quality health care. She has leveraged her tech background to balance consumer rights with innovation to create protections that benefit us all. DelBene played a key role in passing the Child Tax Credit and is leading efforts to expand it going forward in order to reduce child poverty across the country. She also recently supported the bipartisan infrastructure law which sent federal funding to Washington to upgrade public roads, ports, broadband, and more. Now, she is running to keep protecting social security, medicare, reproductive freedom, and community investments that help Americans afford the basics.

    Mill Creek City Council member and sheriff deputy Vincent Cavaleri is challenging DelBene in this race. He wants to expand militarized police forces and send more people to Washington’s expensive and overpopulated prisons. Instead of Cavaleri's failed positions, we need greater investments in community solutions that compassionately address addiction, housing insecurity, and mental health so that we can all thrive.

    DelBene is a pragmatic and hardworking Democratic leader who will continue to make progress at the federal level if she is re-elected. She deserves your vote to represent Washington’s 1st Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

  • El representante Rick Larsen es un demócrata moderado que busca su undécimo mandato representando al 2º Distrito Congresal de Washington. Antes de servir en el Congreso, sirvió en el Consejo del Condado de Snohomish y trabajó en el desarrollo económico para la Ciudad de Everett.

    Larsen ha sido un voto confiable en las prioridades de los demócratas de la Cámara de Representantes. Desde su última elección, votó tanto por el proyecto de ley de infraestructura bipartidista como por Build Back Better, el esfuerzo más ambicioso del presidente Biden para financiar la energía limpia, los créditos fiscales por hijos y otras prioridades progresistas. En los últimos años, Larsen apoyó la Ley de Costos Más Bajos de Medicamentos Ahora para darle a Medicare el poder de negociar directamente con las compañías farmacéuticas y transmitir los precios más bajos de los medicamentos a todos los estadounidenses. También votó a favor de la Ley de Avance del Derecho al Voto, apoyó los paquetes de ayuda de la pandemia de coronavirus y buscó reformar los préstamos estudiantiles. 

    El republicano Dan Matthews, un veterano y piloto retirado de aerolíneas comerciales, se enfrenta al titular Larsen en esta elección. Matthews enumera docenas de “áreas de preocupación” en su sitio web con una invitación a “dejar que comience el diálogo”, pero no enumera ninguna posición política real. Sin embargo, algunos de los temas que enumera son consistentes con la agenda republicana de MAGA que vemos en todo el país este año, incluida la retórica peligrosa sobre el fraude electoral y las políticas fronterizas que se hacen eco de los puntos de conversación de Trump en 2016. 

    Larsen es la opción clara para el Congreso del 2º Distrito Congresal de Washington.

  • La Dra. Kim Schrier busca la reelección para su escaño en la Cámara de Representantes de los Estados Unidos que representa al 8º Distrito Congresal de Washington. Antes de servir dos términos en el Congreso, trabajó como pediatra y dirigió un consultorio pediátrico local en Issaquah cuidando a niños y familias en toda la región. 
     
    Schrier ha aportado constantemente su experiencia profesional en salud y sus valores impulsados por la comunidad al Congreso. A diferencia de su oponente republicano, Schrier apoyaría una ley federal que proteja la libertad reproductiva para todos los estadounidenses. Este término, Schrier apoyó el proyecto de ley de infraestructura bipartidista que proporcionará fondos esenciales para mejorar las carreteras y puentes locales, así como $19 millones de dólares para proyectos de seguridad peatonal solo en el Distrito 8. También votó a favor de Build Back Better, que habría proporcionado fondos para la educación temprana, extendido el crédito fiscal por hijos, reducido el costo del cuidado infantil y combatido el cambio climático. Si es reelegida, Schrier quiere priorizar las necesidades cotidianas de las familias trabajadoras, así como ser una agente de cambio convincente en temas de salud pública como recetas asequibles, prevención de la violencia armada, aire limpio y acceso a alimentos saludables. 
     
    Schrier se enfrenta al republicano partidario de Trump Matt Larkin, uno de los candidatos de más extrema derecha en la boleta electoral en Washington este año. Es uno de los candidatos más firmemente antiaborto que pide una legislación federal para prohibir los abortos en todo el país, e incluso se opone a ciertos anticonceptivos y opciones de Plan B. Larkin se postula en una plataforma republicana de Trump que descuida a los miembros de nuestra comunidad que enfrentan más dificultades. Larkin también se une a algunos de los candidatos de extrema derecha en su negativa a reconocer que Joe Biden ganó las elecciones presidenciales de 2020, ignorando la voluntad del pueblo. 
     
    Schrier ha sido una miembro destacada del Congreso que trabaja a través de las líneas del partido para lograr resultados para su distrito. Ella se ha ganado su voto para la reelección.

  • El demócrata Steve Hobbs se postula para retener su puesto como Secretario de Estado por el resto del mandato de dos años. Es un estadounidense de origen japonés de primera generación y miembro del ejército durante 30 años, sirviendo en giras en Kosovo e Irak antes de convertirse en teniente coronel en la Guardia Nacional del Ejército de Washington.
     
    Hobbs fue nombrado Secretario de Estado en noviembre del año pasado después de que Kim Wyman renunciara para unirse a la Administración Biden. Antes de su nombramiento, sirvió cuatro términos en el Senado del estado de Washington representando al Distrito Legislativo 44. Su historial de votos fue consistentemente progresista en temas sociales y se inclinó a más conservador en impuestos y derechos de los trabajadores. 
     
    Durante sus primeros 8 meses en el cargo, Hobbs se ha centrado en proteger nuestros sistemas electorales de los ataques. Ha utilizado su experiencia en seguridad nacional para asociarse estrechamente con el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional para detener las amenazas digitales a nuestros sistemas de votación, tanto extranjeros como nacionales. Hobbs también entiende el desafío que la desinformación plantea a la integridad de nuestras elecciones. Ha estado trabajando para establecer una división dentro de su oficina específicamente para combatir la desinformación y quiere trabajar en estrecha colaboración con las compañías de redes sociales para asegurarse de que eliminen las peligrosas teorías de conspiración. 
     
    A medida que la pandemia disminuye, Hobbs se compromete a reiniciar el programa de alcance electoral de su oficina. Está muy entusiasmado con un programa de mensajería confiable que está lanzando para utilizar a los líderes de la comunidad para hablar sobre la importancia de votar. También quiere mejorar el alcance para reducir las disparidades raciales en las boletas rechazadas debido a los desajustes de firmas. 
     
    El único tema de preocupación con Hobbs es su oposición personal a la votación por orden de preferencia. Durante nuestra entrevista, compartió que le preocupa implementar un nuevo y complicado sistema de votación en un momento de baja confianza en nuestras elecciones. Además, le preocupa que los votantes como su madre, que habla inglés como segundo idioma, tengan dificultades para aprender y participar en el nuevo sistema. Los expertos han reiterado que la votación por orden de preferencia es simple para todos los votantes y se ha utilizado con éxito en las boletas en varios idiomas. 
     
    Hobbs argumentó de forma convincente que el secretario de Estado debe adaptarse a los nuevos y complejos desafíos de organizar elecciones modernas. Hobbs es una buena opción si está buscando a alguien con amplios respaldos demócratas y con experiencia en seguridad nacional para salvaguardar y reconstruir la confianza en nuestro sistema electoral.

  • La auditora del condado de Pierce, Julie Anderson, se postula como independiente para llevar una voz no partidista a la oficina del secretario de estado. Anderson sirvió en el Consejo Municipal de Tacoma antes de postularse para auditora del condado en 2009 y ganar la reelección tres veces. Como auditora del condado de Pierce, que es un puesto no partidista, ha administrado docenas de elecciones al tiempo que supervisa la concesión de licencias y el mantenimiento de registros públicos. 
     
    Anderson se postula porque cree que los partidos políticos no deberían participar en la realización de elecciones que simultáneamente están tratando de ganar. Sus prioridades de campaña incluyen apoyar que más elecciones locales se conviertan en no partidistas, aumentar el acceso a la información electoral y de votación, y mejorar la seguridad electoral. Quiere traducir el folleto de los votantes a 10 idiomas, yendo más allá de lo que exige la Ley de Derechos Electorales. También quiere llevar a cabo auditorías que limiten el riesgo en los 39 condados de Washington y desmentir rumores para aumentar la confianza en los sistemas electorales de nuestro estado. 
     
    Durante nuestra entrevista, Anderson expresó su apoyo a la votación por orden de preferencia porque cree que permitirá a los candidatos romper nuestro sistema político bipartidista. Este es uno de los mayores puntos de diferencia entre Anderson y Hobbs.
     
    Anderson ofrece a los votantes una opción experimentada si están buscando una administradora no partidista para administrar las elecciones de nuestro estado y apoyar la votación por orden de preferencia.

  • Democrat

    Davina Duerr

    Evergreen Future
    Evergreen Future
  • Incumbent Rep. Davina Duerr is running for re-election to Position 1 in the 1st Legislative District. Duerr joined the House in 2019 when she replaced Derek Stanford who moved to the Senate. Prior to joining the Legislature, she served as deputy city mayor from 2016 to 2019 while on the Bothell City Council, where she still serves in an at-large position. She also chaired the Bothell Landmark Preservation Board for eight years and founded the M.I.L.K. Money campaign at the Northshore Schools Foundation to support students experiencing homelessness.

    In the Legislature, Duerr has sponsored an impressive slate of progressive legislation. Most recently, she supported bills to make sure all Washingtonians pay their share in taxes and to reduce gun violence caused by homemade guns. Duerr has worked to increase affordable housing options, invest in public schools, and ensure environmental protection.

    Duerr's opponent is Republican John Peeples, who unsuccessfully ran for Seattle City Council in 2019 and state representative in the 43rd Legislative District in 2018. This year, he is running again largely to fight against public health requirements that kept Washingtonians safe during the pandemic. Peeples does not have elected or community leadership experience.

    Duerr has been a strong and consistent progressive leader in the House and deserves re-election to Position 1 of the 1st Legislative District.

  • Rep. Shelley Kloba is seeking re-election to Position 2 representing the 1st Legislative District. Kloba was elected to the Legislature in 2016 and previously served a three-year term on the Kirkland City Council and a four-year term on the Kirkland Parks Board. She has been involved in community projects such as the King County Domestic Violence Initiative and the King County Cities Climate Collaboration, and brings a particular eye for consumer protections and boosting opportunities for working people.

    Kloba has championed many issues in the Legislature, such as data privacy, gun safety, and treating gambling addiction as a health issue. She was the prime sponsor of a bill that extended the Expanded Learning Opportunities Council, which increases opportunities for students from low-income backgrounds. She also sponsored successful legislation this year to expand coverage of the paid family and medical leave program, improve public contracting opportunities for women- and minority-owned businesses, and more.

    Her challenger this year is Republican real estate agent Jerry Buccola, who is running to deny Washingtonians the freedom to access safe, legal abortions. He states that we would also repeal the governor's emergency powers and the growth management act, two reactionary and politically-driven ideas with far-reaching consequences beyond this election cycle. As of late October, he has no campaign website or other policy priorities to review.

    We recommend Rep. Kloba for re-election so she can continue fighting for progressive values at the state level. She deserves your vote in the 1st Legislative District.

  • Clyde Shavers es un nuevo candidato que se postula para el 10º Distrito Legislativo, Posición 1. Es un veterano de la Marina de los Estados Unidos que anteriormente se desempeñó como oficial de submarinos y oficial de asuntos públicos y ahora trabaja como oficial de reserva. 

    Los principales temas de la campaña de Shavers son abordar la crisis de la vivienda y priorizar la sostenibilidad ambiental. Ha sido un líder en ayudar a las personas en su comunidad a acceder a opciones de vivienda estable, tanto en la facultad de derecho, donde fundó la Yale Coalition to End Homelessness, como en Mount Vernon, donde se ofreció como voluntario en la Skagit Friendship House. Además, ha centrado su defensa legal en encontrar soluciones climáticas para que todas las comunidades estadounidenses tengan acceso a agua potable limpia, bosques saludables y aire seguro, ahora y para las generaciones venideras. Si es elegido, Shavers también quiere trabajar hacia una educación de calidad, cuidado de salud asequible, libertad reproductiva y apoyo para los veteranos. 

    Shavers se enfrenta al representante republicano Greg Gilday, un abogado y agente de bienes raíces que ha impulsado una agenda muy conservadora desde que se unió a la Legislatura en 2021. Este año, Gilday votó en contra de la legislación para proteger el medio ambiente de Washington para las generaciones futuras y se opuso a un proyecto de ley para mantener a nuestras comunidades a salvo de la violencia armada. Luchó contra la educación integral de salud sexual para estudiantes y quiere redirigir los fondos de los servicios comunitarios que ayudan a los habitantes de Washington a pagar lo básico a militarizar y expandir aún más las fuerzas policiales. 

    Clyde Shavers es la opción clara en esta elección y merece su voto para la Posición 1 de la Cámara en el 10º Distrito Legislativo.

  • El representante demócrata Dave Paul se postula para la reelección al 10º Distrito Legislativo, Posición 2. El titular se unió por primera vez a la Legislatura en 2019 después de trabajar para Skagit Valley College durante más de una década. 

    Paul ha sido un defensor de las familias trabajadoras y de mejorar nuestro sistema de transporte durante su tiempo en el cargo. Fue copatrocinador del Crédito fiscal para Familias Trabajadoras del año pasado que pone efectivo directamente en manos de los trabajadores de Washington. En esta sesión, apoyó el paquete Move Ahead Washington para mejorar la infraestructura y el acceso al transporte público. Mirando hacia el futuro, Paul quiere invertir en dar a los jóvenes de Washington los recursos educativos y de salud mental que necesitan para tener éxito. 

    La republicana Karen Lesetmoe se enfrenta a Paul para la cámara estatal. Es una corredora de bienes raíces y veterana de la Marina. Lesetmoe no tiene una agenda detallada, pero enfrenta su campaña contra los programas de recuperación económica del estado que ayudan a mantener a flote a las familias trabajadoras. Lesetmoe se ha hecho eco de los puntos de conversación republicanos sobre el crimen mientras ignora las inversiones que nuestras comunidades necesitan para estar seguras. 
    Paul ha sido uno de los líderes más reflexivos en Olimpia durante sus dos primeros mandatos, trabajando con el otro partido para lograr que se hagan las cosas que benefician al distrito.

    Recomendamos con entusiasmo a Paul para que continúe representando al 10º Distrito Legislativo en la Cámara de Representantes con un fuerte liderazgo centrado en la comunidad

  • Sen. Marko Liias has been of the state's best progressive advocates for youth and future-focused transit. He was first elected to the Mukilteo City Council in 2005 before being appointed to the state House in 2007, and finally the state Senate in 2014.

    As the Democratic Senate floor leader, Liias has led the fight for LGBTQ+ equality and created a student loan bill of rights. In the 2022 session, Liias led on a major transportation package that will expand trails, fund ferries and high speed rail, and let kids ride free on public transportation across the state. He also sponsored bills limiting the sale of high-capacity gun magazines and expanding student loan forgiveness. His past legislative accomplishments include passing a ban on the inhumane practice of conversion therapy and creating a new state financial aid program for undocumented students.

    After running for Edmonds City Council last year and losing to Will Chen, Republican Janelle Cass is now challenging Liias for state Senate. Her housing plans would not produce enough homes to offer relief to renters and homeowners in the district who are struggling with rising costs. The homelessness policies Cass proposes focus on attempting to arrest our way out of the problem.

    Our communities need a leader who believes everyone deserves a fair shot at a home with a door that locks and access to services. Liias has been a strong force for progress in the Legislature and is by far the best choice in this race.

  • Democratic Rep. Strom Peterson is running for re-election to represent the 21st Legislative District in House Position 1. Prior to joining the Legislature, Peterson served on the Edmonds City Council for six years where he proved to be a capable and thoughtful leader.

    In Olympia, Peterson has had a hand in passing several important progressive bills. This year, Peterson sponsored legislation to limit the sale of ghost guns and restrict guns in certain public locations like school board meetings. He also sponsored the wealth tax, which would finally make Washington's extremely wealthy pay their share for the resources that we all use, and he supported the middle housing bill to expand housing around transit.

    In previous years, Peterson was a sponsor of Breakfast Before the Bell, which provides meals for hungry students. In 2018, he was the primary sponsor of the Secure Drug Medicine Back Act, an innovative program to limit the usage of unused and expired prescriptions in Washington communities.

    Peterson faces a challenge from Republican Amy Schaper. She has previously stated that she opposes reproductive freedom and comprehensive, age-appropriate sexual health education. In this race, she is running on a typically conservative platform that does not serve the needs of the community.

    Peterson is the clear choice for Legislature in this race.

  • Rep. Lillian Ortiz-Self is running for re-election to the 21st Legislative District, House Position 2. She is a mental health counselor in the Everett School District and an active member of the community focusing on childhood education and strengthening health services.

    Since joining the House in 2009, Rep. Ortiz-Self has emerged as a progressive champion for improving the health and wellbeing of youth and families across Washington. She is co-chair of the state’s Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee and serves on the National Council of State Legislators' Education Committee as well.

    This year, she was the prime sponsor of the bill to prevent the state from contracting with private prisons, and also supported the successful bill to reduce the sale of high-capacity gun magazines. Previously, Ortiz-Self was the prime sponsor of bills to increase student access to counselors and provide resources for homeless college students. If re-elected, she wants to continue strongly funding education, increase resources for mental wellness, and pass more evidence-based gun violence prevention legislation.

    Ortiz-Self's opponent is Republican Petra Bigea, who unsuccessfully challenged Ortiz-Self in 2018. She is running on a vague MAGA Republican platform to prioritize corporations and the wealthy and to chip away at some of our civil rights. Like many Republicans this year, she is trying to turn us against schools and teachers by injecting politics into the classroom and seeking to deny students an honest and accurate education.

    The district needs a serious representative who will protect the health and opportunities of everyone. Rep. Ortiz-Self has earned your vote in this race.

  • Sen. Jesse Salomon is running for re-election to continue bringing progressive leadership to the 32nd Legislative District. A part-time public defender and former Shoreline City Council member, Salomon has been serving in the Legislature since 2019 where he has been a crucial voice for environmental protections, living affordability, and public education.

    In Olympia, Salomon recently supported the historic Move Ahead Washington green transportation package that invests in infrastructure upgrades and expanded access to Washington’s public transit. Earlier this year, he introduced a bill to strengthen police accountability by closing a loophole that allows officers guilty of serious misconduct to return to their jobs. This came in response to the 2020 case of the Kent officer who displayed pro-Nazi insignia outside his office. Salomon is running for re-election to keep fighting climate change, addressing the housing crisis, and improving the quality of life for all local residents.

    Salomon faces a Democratic challenger in this race, Patricia Weber. Weber is a retired medical doctor and former PCO for her local Democrats. She is running on a platform to get everyone the medical care they need, including mental health services. Weber also wants to make sure all Washingtonians have affordable housing, fair pay, good schools, and freedom from gun violence.

    We recommend Jesse Salomon for re-election to the state Senate in the 32nd Legislative District because of his proven track record of progressive law making and community advocacy.

  • Democrat Rep. Cindy Ryu is running for re-election to the 32nd Legislative District, Position 1. Ryu was originally elected in 2011 when she became the first Korean American to join the state Legislature. Before that, Ryu also made history as the first Korean American woman mayor in the country when she served the City of Shoreline.

    Ryu has been an advocate for public education, transportation, small business owners, and the environment in the Legislature. Recently, she sponsored a slate of progressive bills including legislation to prohibit guns at school board meetings, city council meetings, and election offices. In the last few weeks, Ryu reaffirmed her support for reproductive freedom for all Washingtonians.

    Ryu faces a challenge this year from Lori Theis, the former director of Alliance for the Advancement of Canine Welfare. Theis is one of several extreme conservatives this year running as a member of the "Election Integrity Party." Her main reason for running is to question election security, echoing the messages of Trump Republicans who tried to overturn the will of the people in the last presidential election.

    Ryu is by far the best choice in this race.

  • Rep. Lauren Davis is seeking re-election to Position 2 representing the 32nd Legislative District. She joined the Legislature in 2019 and additionally leads the Washington Recovery Alliance, a nonprofit that helps those experiencing addiction and mental health issues. In her free time, Davis also serves on the Public Policy Committee for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Washington State.

    In the Legislature, Davis has voted with other progressives on important bills that prohibited the sale of high-capacity firearm magazines and set new carbon neutrality goals for the state. Recently, she sponsored legislation to connect people who are experiencing mental health crises with treatment and resources rather than criminalization. Davis’ top priorities include affordable housing, gun violence prevention, addiction recovery, and quality education from K-12 to public universities.

    Davis's challenger is Republican Anthony Hubbard. He does not have a working campaign website or priorities listed as of mid-October and has no professional, elected, or community leadership experience in his official voter's guide statement. Though he's running as a Republican, his language is a near copy-paste duplicate of the extreme Election Integrity Party candidates this year. Their priority is to question election security alongside the Trump Republicans who tried to overturn the will of the people last presidential election.

    Rep. Davis is by far the best choice in this race.

  • Sen. June Robinson is running for re-election to continue serving the 38th Legislative District in the state Senate. She first joined the House in 2013 and was appointed to the Senate seat first in 2020 before being elected to it by voters that same year. Robinson also spent the last 10 years working for the Seattle & King County Public Health as a program manager for the Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention section.

    In the Legislature, Robinson has been a leader in economic security and public health. This year, she supported a slate of progressive bills including legislation to prohibit the sale of high-capacity firearm magazines and a bill to update our state’s climate action goals. Robinson was a primary sponsor of the capital gains tax, which would finally make corporations and the wealthy pay their share so that all our communities can access high-quality education, affordable health care, and child care.

    Robinson is facing a challenge from Bernard Moody, a former marine who has spent more than 30 years in law enforcement work. Moody also challenged Robinson for this seat in 2020 when he ran on a conservative platform that was out of touch with community needs. If elected, he would support cutting funding for critical community supports, vote against policies that keep us safe from gun violence, and undermine reproductive freedom.

    We need leaders in Olympia who will embrace science and put our communities first. June Robinson is the clear choice for state senator in the 38th Legislative District.

  • Julio Cortes is a progressive first-time candidate running to fill Position 1 after Rep. Emily Wicks retired. Cortes works for the city of Everett doing communications and marketing work. He is a leader in the community, serving on the board of the Everett Arena Public Facilities District and previously working with Cocoon House to support families and children experiencing housing insecurity.

    Cortes has a strong community-focused platform in this race. If elected, he wants to make the district safer and more resilient so that everyone can have a roof over their head, food on the table, and the opportunity to succeed. Cortes specifically wants to invest in small businesses, create more sustainable, living-wage jobs, and ensure that corporations and the wealthy pay their share for the resources we all use. He believes that a key to addressing the housing crisis is investing in comprehensive wrap-around services for those experiencing homelessness in our communities. Cortes’ campaign has earned the endorsements of community organizations and local progressive leaders, including Rep. Wicks.

    Cortes is running against Gary Kemp, a former union leader who is running on an extreme Trump Republican platform. If elected, he wants to send militarized police forces into our community while stripping back law enforcement accountability measures. His response to addiction in our community is to incarcerate those that are struggling most instead of investing in treatment. Kemp joins far-right Republicans who are fighting to control school curriculums so that Washington students don’t learn accurate history or comprehensive sexual health education.

    We recommend Julio Cortes for House Position 1 because of his widespread community support in this race and his progressive vision for the 38th Legislative District.

  • Everett City Councilmember Mary Fosse is running for Position 2 in the 38th Legislative District to replace Democrat Mike Sells, who is retiring. Fosse was elected to the city council in 2021 where she has continued her advocacy for Everett’s underserved Delta neighborhood. Outside of elected office, she owns a local nursery that teaches plant workshops and she previously chaired the Delta Neighborhood Association.

    During her first year on the council, Fosse championed an effort to secure more than $5 million dollars for a cleanup of the Delta neighborhood to ensure that all Everett residents have access to a clean, healthy place to live, work, and care for their families. She has also been an advocate for workers’ rights and climate action in office. Fosse's deep roots in the district give her a unique view into the needs of the people she's running to serve. If elected to the Legislature, Fosse’s top priority will be to support working families that are getting priced out because of the increasing cost of child care, housing, and health care.

    Army veteran and Marysville City Councilmember Mark James is challenging Fosse for Position 2 on a conservative platform. James owns a coupon magazine company and previously ran unsuccessfully for a seat in the Legislature in the 44th LD. If elected, he wants to direct money to further militarize our police while cutting funding for the public services that keep our communities safe like affordable health care, housing and food security, and high-quality schools. His approach to addressing addiction in our communities is based on fear-mongering and criminalization rather than the compassion and treatment we need.

    Residents in the 38th Legislative District deserve a representative who will help all Washingtonians access the resources they need to live happy and healthy lives. Mary Fosse is the clear choice for Position 2.

  • There are two Republicans in the race for Position 1 in the 39th Legislative District. Though both are conservative, there are significant differences between them that lead us to recommend Low. 

    Snohomish County Councilmember Sam Low has served on the county council since 2016 and is a former Lake Stevens city council member. Low's views on creating family-wage jobs and preserving farmland and open space have earned him the support of several unions and some Democrats. Unfortunately, if elected, Low would also join his Republican colleagues in cutting funding for community investments that provide schools with essential resources, expand affordable housing, and upgrade public infrastructure. 

    Low is challenging MAGA Republican Rep. Robert Sutherland, who worked as a biochemist for pharmaceutical companies and a distillery before joining the Legislature. Sutherland has been one of the most outspoken proponents of far-right conspiracy theories in the legislature, including seeking to overturn the results of the 2020 election. In addition, he opposed bills this session to prevent homelessness for those with mental health concerns and to keep our communities safe from high-capacity firearms. Sutherland was officially reprimanded for misconduct this March when he yelled expletives at a law enforcement officer while at a far-right rally dedicated to Trump’s election conspiracy theories.

    While we disagree with Low on many important issues, he is the more responsible choice in this race. Vote Low for Position 1 representing the 39th Legislative District.

  • Jessica Wadhams is challenging Republican incumbent Caroline Eslick for the 39th Legislative District, House Position 2. Wadhams is a community leader who has worked professionally in retail management. She co-founded the Lake Stevens BIPOC & Allies group and serves on the board of the National Women’s Political Caucus of Washington.

    Wadhams is running on a commonsense platform to improve public infrastructure, community services, and access to essential resources so all Washingtonians can achieve economic security. One of her top priorities is ensuring that everyone in our state can afford the prescriptions and health care services they need. For Wadhams, this means guaranteeing first and foremost that community members have the freedom to choose if and when to grow their family. If elected, Wadhams also wants to focus on bringing more living-wage jobs to the district, making corporations and the wealthy pay their share, and investing in quality education.

    Wadhams is challenging Rep. Caroline Eslick, who is seeking her fifth term in the House. Eslick is the former mayor of Sultan and previously worked as a restaurant owner and in business development. In office, she has fought policies that invest in our communities so that we can all lead safe, healthy lives. Now, Eslick is running in opposition to efforts to make our school curriculums more accurate and reflective of our diverse Washington communities. If re-elected, she will continue pursuing a conservative social and economic agenda that doesn’t represent the needs of working families in the 39th Legislative District.

    Jessica Wadhams has proven her commitment to making the district a better place to live and work. She is the clear choice in this race and deserves your vote for Position 2 representing the 39th Legislative District.

  • John Lovick is running to retain the 44th Legislative District Senate seat. Lovick is a former Snohomish County executive and Mill Creek City Council member, and he served as the House speaker pro tem for five years. In late 2021, he was appointed by the Snohomish County Council to this seat when incumbent Sen. Steve Hobbs was named secretary of state.

    During his time in the Legislature, Lovick has been a strong supporter of unions and working people. In the Senate, Lovick wrote a bill to reduce drunk driving crashes by lowering the allowable legal blood alcohol limit. He also sponsored the successful paid family and medical leave act, as well as legislation to keep our communities safe from gun violence. By sponsoring the historic transportation bill this year, Lovick has invested in not only road maintenance but also transit, ferries, sidewalks, and more, supporting transportation that everyone across the state can access. With demonstrated progressive priorities, he offers experienced leadership at this challenging moment.

    Lovick's challenger, Republican Jeb Brewer, does not have elected or community leadership experience, but says he will bring a business lens to the Senate. Unfortunately, much of his conservative agenda doesn't suit the needs of the district. Rather than focusing on proven solutions driven by the community, he wants to roll back the long-overdue police accountability laws that have passed in recent years. Brewer's one-dimensional approach to transportation would short-change the options our diverse community needs to get to school, work, and recreation, especially compared to Lovick's sponsored bill. Finally, Brewer's policy on homelessness doesn't address the keystone issue that pushes individuals and families into homelessness - the incredibly high cost of housing. Criminalizing homelessness will only make the problem worse and cost taxpayers even more money.

    Sen. Lovick's unique perspective has helped him sponsor and hone legislation that works for everyone in the district. He has earned your vote.

  • Incumbent Rep. Brandy Donaghy is running to build on her strong first term serving the 44th District. She was appointed to the House by the Snohomish County Council in late 2021 when former representative John Lovick moved to the Senate.

    Donaghy is a Navy veteran and community organizer who has been involved in emergency preparedness training. She put her professional experience to work during her first term by expanding emergency workers' ability to protect the community. Donaghy sponsored legislation to address safe staffing levels for health care workers, which aimed to improve health and safety for both patients and practitioners. She also supported legislation to allow EMTs to provide vaccines and testing outside of an emergency in response to a public health agency's request.

    Donaghy faces a challenge from former Republican Rep. Mark Harmsworth. He served two terms in the state House before losing to Democrat Jared Mead in the 2018 election. While he was a representative, Harmsworth pushed a very conservative agenda that aimed to reduce access to health care and the freedom to vote. He voted against the Reproductive Parity Act, which required that all insurance plans in Washington that cover maternity care also cover the full range of reproductive health services, and also voted against the Washington Voting Rights Act. In addition, he wasted taxpayer money on a politically driven investigation into Sound Transit. If elected this year, expect Harmsworth to continue fighting against public transportation and the right for everyone to access equal treatment, whether at the doctor's office or the ballot box.

    Voters rejected Harmsworth's regressive agenda in 2018 and should do so again in 2022. Donaghy will fight for our shared values and has earned your vote.

  • Rep. April Berg is running for re-election to the 44th Legislative District, House Position 2. She is a former small business owner, director at the Everett School District, and a planning commissioner for the City of Mill Creek.

    Berg's progressive accomplishments in the Legislature include working to reduce the cost of living for families, providing COVID relief, and modernizing the transit systems that get us to school, work, and play. As an advocate for youth, Berg has sponsored legislation to eliminate the lunch co-pay for hungry students and make menstrual products free in public school bathrooms.

    Berg prioritized community safety this year by sponsoring bills to ban ghost guns. In addition, she took action to protect residents and elected officials by restricting guns in certain locations where harassment is likely to occur, including school board meetings and near ballot drop boxes. Her impressive record of accomplishments includes needed transportation and infrastructure upgrades. She also supported the landmark transportation bill, which will have a big impact on Snohomish County. The bill not only funds free rides for kids on public transit but also will fund projects like the Snohomish Teen Center and the Mill Creek Library rehabilitation.

    Berg's opponent in this race is Republican Ryne Rohla, an economist in the state attorney general's office. While some of his policy positions should be commended, including offering training for workers for a green economy, his platform largely skews very conservative. Notably, he opposes balancing our upside-down tax code by making the wealthy pay their share to our communities. His proposal to arrest people for being homeless if they refuse shelter, or "go to prison until you change your mind," as he puts it, is as ineffective as it is heartless when there is nowhere near enough shelters or low-income housing available. He is also anti-abortion, and though he acknowledges that repealing abortion statewide would likely be overturned, it's unfortunate that he doesn't believe that Washingtonians should have the freedom to decide when and if to have children.

    During these challenging times, we need leaders who offer thoughtful solutions based on evidence, not more divisive political rhetoric. Berg is the clear choice in this race for state House.

  • Jason Cummings se postula para servir al condado de Snohomish como fiscal del condado. Cummings ha trabajado en la oficina del fiscal del condado de Snohomish desde 1999 y, durante los últimos 14 años, ha sido el principal fiscal adjunto civil allí. Ha pasado su tiempo libre en una serie de puestos de liderazgo comunitario, incluso como presidente de la junta del Imagine Children's Museum. 

    Cummings quiere dirigir la oficina del fiscal con transparencia e integridad. Como líder de la Data Collective Initiative, también tiene un fuerte enfoque en la comprensión de las disparidades raciales y étnicas en Snohomish para que la fiscalía pueda brindar servicios legales equitativos y precisos para todos los residentes. En esta elección, Cummings ha recibido muchos respaldos locales y estatales para aportar su amplia experiencia y un fuerte sentido de la justicia al cargo. 

    Cummings se postula contra Brett Rogers, un abogado y ex oficial del Departamento de Policía de Seattle. Al igual que muchos de sus compañeros republicanos, Rogers quiere usar la policía, las cárceles y las prisiones como una solución general para los problemas sociales que enfrentan nuestras comunidades, lo cual es más costoso y menos efectivo. Sus puntos de vista sobre el crimen y el castigo se hacen eco de creencias anticuadas y derechistas que no hacen que nuestras comunidades sean más seguras.
