Otros Candidatos

El oponente de Manion es el alcalde de Federal Way, Jim Ferrell, quien ha sido elegido tres veces desde 2013. Ferrell es tres veces miembro del Consejo de la Ciudad de Federal Way, y fue fiscal en Renton antes de convertirse más tarde en Fiscal Adjunto Senior del Condado de King.

Ferrell se postula para Fiscal del Condado de King con un rumbo diferente al de Manion. Ha sido crítico con el programa de desvío juvenil altamente efectivo del Condado de King, que proporciona a los delincuentes juveniles primerizos de bajo nivel una alternativa a la prisión. 
Se ha demostrado que el programa Restorative Community Pathways reduce el porcentaje de jóvenes que reinciden en más de la mitad. Sin pruebas, Ferrell continúa atacando el programa utilizando puntos de conversación políticos republicanos sobre el crimen. 

Ferrell está respaldado por varios gremios policiales conservadores, y apareció en una conferencia de prensa con el líder del Gremio de Oficiales de Policía de Seattle, Mike Solan, quien es conocido por defender a los oficiales de Seattle que participaron en la insurrección del 6 de enero. Durante el tiempo de Ferrell como alcalde, el Departamento de Policía de Federal Way ha tenido múltiples casos de oficiales que usaron fuerza excesiva y se comportaron de manera inapropiada, incluido un controvertido video publicado por un oficial que fue noticia nacional este verano. 

Ferrell está respaldado por el Partido Republicano del Condado de King, y su historial como alcalde y plataforma de campaña dejan en claro que buscaría revertir las reformas duramente ganadas hechas en la oficina del Fiscal del Condado de King en los últimos años. Manion es la opción clara en esta elección.

  • 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 Proposición 1 del Condado de King extendería el impuesto de Futuros de Conservación. El impuesto proporciona fondos a largo plazo para apoyar los ecosistemas locales y los espacios abiertos para que las granjas, los bosques, las costas y las vías verdes estén protegidos para las generaciones venideras. 
     
    Desde 1982, los fondos de los impuestos de Futuros de Conservación han ayudado a proteger más de 100,000 acres de tierra como espacio abierto en cada rincón del condado. Algunos de los proyectos incluyen el bosque Discover Parky Capehart, el Sammamish River Trail y el Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park. La Proposición 1 le costaría al propietario de una casa mediana del Condado de King aproximadamente $22 al año.

  • 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.

  • La representante Pramila Jayapal se postula para la reelección en el 7º Distrito Congresal. Tiene una larga historia de liderazgo cívico en la reforma migratoria, la justicia económica y las libertades civiles. La representante Jayapal fundó OneAmerica (anteriormente Hate Free Zone) en 2001 y la convirtió en la organización de derechos de los inmigrantes más grande del estado y en un modelo nacional. También desempeñó un papel clave en el Comité Asesor de la Alcaldía que creó el salario mínimo de $15 de Seattle, y este año aseguró $31 millones en fondos federales para proyectos comunitarios en el área de Seattle, incluyendo la vivienda, las ciencias, la educación y el medio ambiente. 
     
    Desde su elección al Congreso en 2016, Jayapal ha resistido a la administración Trump y a los extremistas conservadores en todo momento y ha proporcionado una voz para los progresistas de todo el país. Ha apoyado el programa de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA) y el Dream Act, que proporcionaría un camino a la ciudadanía para los jóvenes beneficiarios de DACA. También presentó legislación para ampliar la negociación colectiva y brindar alivio a los trabajadores y las empresas durante la pandemia. Más recientemente, ha convocado una huelga nacional de mujeres en respuesta a la prohibición del aborto por parte del Tribunal Supremo y la restricción de la libertad reproductiva en todo el país. Jayapal también está tratando de codificar una declaración de derechos de las personas transgénero para proteger a nuestro país de la erosión de los derechos civiles de las personas transgénero. 
     
    Su oponente, el republicano Paul Glumaz, se postuló para el Consejo Municipal de Seattle el año pasado con una agenda conservadora. Se está postulando en una plataforma similar este año, incluyendo el intento de salir de la crisis de vivienda y la falta de vivienda a escala nacional a base de arrestos. Tampoco tiene experiencia en liderazgo electo o comunitario.
     
    Jayapal tiene mucha experiencia y responde a sus electores, y ha celebrado más de 100 foros comunitarios durante su tiempo en el Congreso. Como presidenta del Caucus Progresista del Congreso, ha sido una de las defensoras progresistas más fuertes en Washington para las necesidades de todos en este país.

  • 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 Adam Smith se postula para un 13º mandato representando al 9º Distrito Congresal de Washington. Antes de postularse para el Congreso, Smith trabajó como abogado, fiscal en la ciudad de Seattle y como senador estatal. Representa al distrito más diverso de Washington, que alberga un 30 por ciento de residentes nacidos en el extranjero y grandes comunidades asiáticas, latinas y negras. 

    En el Congreso el año pasado, Smith apoyó el esfuerzo más ambicioso de Biden para financiar la energía limpia, los créditos fiscales por hijos y otras prioridades progresistas. A diferencia de algunos de sus colegas moderados, también patrocinó tanto el Green New Deal como la Ley de Medicare para Todos. Anteriormente apoyó el paquete de ayuda contra la pandemia y la Ley de Justicia en la Vigilancia Policial de George Floyd para aumentar drásticamente la rendición de cuentas y la transparencia. Sin embargo, algunos progresistas han criticado a Smith por sus posturas de política exterior más agresivas. Ahora, está enfocado en crear empleos con salarios dignos, luchar por Medicare para Todos y proteger y expandir el Seguro Social.

    También en esta elección está el republicano Doug Basler, quien ha intentado y fracasado en desbancar a Smith en todas las elecciones desde 2014. Basler es un republicano de Trump que se opone a la libertad reproductiva y a las medidas de salud pública tomadas para combatir el coronavirus. Ahora está promoviendo algunas de las teorías de conspiración de extrema derecha que buscan negar a nuestros hijos una educación integral y precisa. 

    La antigüedad y la experiencia de Smith lo convierten en una voz influyente para nosotros en el otro Washington. Él es la opción clara en esta elección y merece su voto para otro mandato en el Congreso.

  • 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.

    Bill Ramos

    Evergreen Future
    Evergreen Future
  • El representante Bill Ramos se postula para la reelección en el Distrito Legislativo 5, Posición 1 para seguir trayendo el liderazgo centrado en las personas al distrito. Se unió por primera vez a la Legislatura en 2019 después de servir previamente en el Consejo Municipal de Issaquah y trabajar como consultor de transporte. 

    Ramos se postula para continuar trabajando para hacer que nuestras comunidades sean más seguras mediante el fortalecimiento de las medidas de rendición de cuentas de la policía, la inversión en infraestructura pública y la protección de nuestros ecosistemas locales. También está priorizando la seguridad económica y la asequibilidad de la vivienda para el distrito al expandir las opciones de vivienda y abordar el código tributario al revés de nuestro estado. 

    Ramos ya ha logrado progreso en estos temas en Olimpia. En particular, votó a favor del histórico paquete Move Ahead Washington que invertirá en un mayor acceso al transporte público junto con mejoras muy necesarias para nuestra infraestructura de transporte. 

    Ramos se enfrenta este año a Kenneth Moninski. Ha pasado su carrera profesional en la industria de la aviación, dirigiendo negocios de comunicaciones y medios. En 2020, se postuló sin éxito para este mismo puesto en una plataforma superficial y típicamente republicana con el respaldo de la NRA. En esta elección, la campaña de Moninski se enfoca en recortar los fondos necesarios para ofrecer escuelas de calidad, cuidado de salud asequible y empleos bien remunerados que garanticen que todas nuestras familias puedan prosperar. 

    Bill Ramos es la opción clara para la Posición 1 de la Cámara de Representantes en el Distrito Legislativo 5.

Antes de eso, se desempeñó como miembro electo y presidenta de la Junta Escolar de Issaquah y trabajó en el sector privado como ingeniera y gerente de proyectos. 
     
    Callan ha trabajado arduamente para lograr un cambio positivo en Washington, incluida la mejora de la seguridad económica de las familias trabajadoras y la inversión en nuestra juventud y nuestra educación pública. Este año, fue nombrada Defensora de la Vivienda Asequible por Habitat for Humanity del Condado de Seattle-King por su trabajo para expandir las opciones de vivienda para todos. Callan presentó dos proyectos de ley para proteger la salud mental de los estudiantes y legislación para promover la seguridad contra el humo quirúrgico tanto para los trabajadores de la salud como para los pacientes. En esta elección, se ha ganado un amplio respaldo de la comunidad debido a su liderazgo consistente y valores progresistas. 
     
    El republicano Chad Magendanz se postula una vez más para la Legislatura, esta vez desafiando a Callan. Es un ex gerente de programas de Microsoft que anteriormente se desempeñó como presidente de la Junta Escolar de Issaquah y en la Cámara de Representantes del estado de 2013 a 2017. Magendanz renunció para postularse para el Senado estatal en 2016, perdiendo ante el senador Mark Mullet, y luego se postuló nuevamente para la Cámara de Representantes estatal en 2018 y perdió ante el representante Bill Ramos.
     
    Mientras estuvo en la Legislatura, Magendanz mantuvo un historial conservador, incluido ser el único legislador del condado de East King de cualquiera de los partidos en votar en contra de un proyecto de ley de transporte que habría reducido el atasco de tráfico en el corredor I-405. Magendanz se postula para recortar las leyes de supervisión corporativa que protegen a los trabajadores, los consumidores y el medio ambiente. Magendanz estaba orgulloso de su calificación “A” de la Asociación Nacional del Rifle durante su última campaña, lo que plantea preguntas sobre su voluntad de mantener a nuestras comunidades a salvo de la violencia armada.
     
    La representante Callan es la opción clara en esta elección y merece ser reelegida para la Posición 2 en el 5º Distrito Legislativo.

  • Progressive incumbent Rep. David Hackney is running for a second term representing the 11th Legislative District in Position 1. Before joining the Legislature, Hackney spent 25 years as a practicing attorney, including at the U.N., and worked at a handful of progressive organizations that focused on environmental protections and workers' rights. In 2019, he was appointed to the Washington State Human Rights Commission by Gov. Inslee.

    This past session, three of Hackney's bills were signed into law. His legislation protected the sensitive information of currently or formerly incarcerated Washingtonians, created a tax exemption for organizations maintaining affordable housing, and increased access to electricity as a transportation fuel for all Washingtonians. Hackney is running for re-election to continue investing in a clean energy future, tackling the housing crisis, and building safe and economically secure communities.

    His challenger this year is Republican precinct committee officer Stephanie Peters, who is running under the extreme Election Integrity Party mantle. Her main priority is to question election security, echoing the messages of MAGA Republicans who are trying to overturn the will of the people in the last presidential election. As of late October, Peters does not have a functioning campaign website to detail her priorities.

    Rep. Hackney is by far the best choice in this race for his experience and his effective first session as a legislator.

  • Incumbent Rep. Steve Bergquist is running for re-election to Position 2 in the 11th Legislative District. Bergquist is a former deputy majority floor leader and currently serves as the vice chair of the House Appropriations Committee. Outside of the Legislature, he teaches high school in the Renton School District and previously owned a small business.

    Bergquist's legislative priority is making community investments to continue economic recovery, particularly for students, working families, and small businesses. This year, Bergquist introduced bills to help with shortages in school staffing and provide career advancement opportunities for public school paraeducators. As a union member, Bergquist has been a consistent advocate for creating living-wage jobs in the 11th Legislative District, and has worked to increase youth voter turnout by allowing 16- and 17-years old to pre-register to vote so that they can be civically engaged and ready to vote by the time they're eligible.

    Bergquist faces a challenge from Republican Jeanette Burrage. She served on the Des Moines City Council from 2012 to 2015 and as a state representative in 1981. Burrage has run for multiple other positions throughout the years, including failed campaigns for Legislature in the 33rd District in 2014 and for Highline School Board in 2019.

    Unfortunately, she wants to bring a slate of regressive policies to Olympia. With only a bare-bones website and no detailed policy agenda available as of late October, Burrage's primary concern based on her official voters' guide statement seems to be denying kids a modern education. Every child, no matter their zip code, background, or race, deserves to see themselves and their experiences in history. Writing race out of the school agenda doesn't help children, it simply erases many of them and denies them the chance to learn about the cultures and experiences of different people.

    Rep. Bergquist's work to improve the lives of students, working people, and families in the district make him by far the best choice in this race.

  • Jamila Taylor is running for re-election to the 30th Legislative District, House Position 1. Taylor is an attorney who advocates for crime victims and has an extensive record of volunteer service. She previously served as the statewide advocacy counsel for the Northwest Justice Project, where she managed a network of legal aid attorneys, and has worked on youth intervention programs and other violence reduction efforts. Taylor was elected chair of the state Black Members Caucus this year, where she advocates for racial equity for all Washingtonians.

    In her first term, Taylor sponsored successful bills to restrict the open carry of guns in public places like school board meetings, establish the state's first statewide digital equity plan, and create a system to locate missing Indigenous people. She was the prime sponsor of legislation that will expand scholarships for community and technical college students. She also supported increasing housing options near transit to alleviate the state's housing crisis. If re-elected, Taylor wants to work on crime and violence prevention, affordable housing access, and health care.

    Taylor's opponent Casey Jones states that he is a Federal Way police commander with 23 years in law enforcement who, unsurprisingly, wants to increase prosecution. Unfortunately, law and order is the only campaign agenda point on his website. Aside from a desire to reduce police accountability measures passed recently in the Legislature, Jones offers no further vision for the district. This doesn’t speak to an interest in the majority of work that a legislator needs to do to keep their communities healthy and whole, including protecting our water and air, supporting great schools, addressing the housing crisis, and more.

    The 30th District doesn't need more abrasive and divisive rhetoric. As we continue to recover from the pandemic, the district needs someone who can bring together communities and write legislation that works for everyone. Taylor's standout first term has shown that she is a progressive and capable legislator, and she has earned your vote in the 30th Legislative District.

  • Former House representative Kristine Reeves is running for the vacant seat left open by the retirement of Rep. Jesse Johnson this year. She currently serves on the Washington State Gambling Commission and is the former director of Economic Development for the Military and Defense sector for Washington state.

    In the Legislature, Reeves was a champion for paid family and medical leave, gun safety, linking students with apprenticeships, and making child care more affordable. She is motivated to address affordable housing and homelessness by using her experience growing up as a foster child and being homeless herself at times. Reeves also wants to see child care workers compensated more fairly, advocate for military families and veterans, achieve greater climate action, and protect abortion rights by closing fake "crisis pregnancy centers" that pretend to offer abortion services.

    Reeves is running against Ashli Tagoai, a lawyer and former communications director for the Washington State Republican Party. Like many MAGA Republicans running this year, Tagoai is trying to divide and scare us about crime instead of providing our communities the care, security, and support we need. Rather than supporting proven strategies to reduce gun violence and address homelessness, Tagoai wants us to believe that the solution is just to put even more people in jail. She also has no desire to balance our state's upside-down tax code and would allow corporations and the wealthy to avoid paying what they owe our communities.

    While Reeves has been progressive on several issues, she's taken a more cautious approach to others, including voting against taxing polluters. She was also one of only three Democrats to vote no on eviction protections in 2019, especially notable in this district because eviction disproportionately affects Black and Latino residents. While we hope that Reeves will vote differently on these issues, Tagoai's far-right agenda would drag the 30th Legislative District backward. Reeves is by far the best choice in this race.

  • Chris Vance is challenging Trump Republican Sen. Phil Fortunato as an independent. Vance has previously served in elected office both in the state Legislature and as a member of the Metropolitan King County Council. He was the former chair of the state’s Republican party and now works for King County in communications and serves as a senior fellow at the Niskanen Center, a Libertarian think tank.

    Vance is an outspoken voice against the MAGA Republican trend in the local party he used to lead. His campaign priorities include making sure all public schools have the resources they need for students to thrive and improving our transit system. Unfortunately, he also wants to direct resources away from the things that make our communities safe and strong like affordable housing, accessible health care, and clean parks, and instead use those funds to expand and militarize police forces.

    Fortunato typifies the extreme Republicans Vance opposes. On the first day of the legislative session this year, Fortunato was escorted off the legislative campus for refusing to follow basic COVID-19 protections. Later, he falsely told constituents that COVID safety guidelines have caused more deaths than the virus itself, which has claimed 1 million lives. Fortunato has also promoted far-right conspiracies that seek to overturn the will of the people in the 2020 election and he recently said that the state’s equity efforts were racial “segregation.”

    Residents of the 31st Legislative District deserve a representative who will put community needs above extremist ideologies and conspiracy beliefs. Though he is not a progressive, Chris Vance is the best choice in this race for state senator.

  • Holly Stanton is an attorney and small business owner running in the 31st Legislative District for Position 1. Stanton is a moderate Democrat and a first-time candidate who wants to strengthen community services so that we can all put food on our tables and access quality health care, housing, and schools. She would also prioritize environmental protections to build a sustainable future for generations to come. Unfortunately, Stanton also supports some more conservative policies around increasing policing instead of expanding public services and infrastructure to keep our communities safe.

    Stanton is challenging Republican Rep. Drew Stokesbary, a practicing attorney at his own law firm. In 2020, at the height of the pandemic, Stokesbary and a few of his GOP colleagues sued Gov. Inslee over the Stay-At-Home order. While many Washington families are struggling to afford the basics like health care, medicine, housing, child care, and education, Stokesbary has opposed investments in our communities in favor of tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy. Though he claims to be interested in public safety, he recently voted against a bill to keep our communities safe from high-capacity firearms and wrongly believes that sending militarized police forces into our neighborhoods will make us safer. Stokesbary has taken some good votes, however, including supporting the Working Families Tax Credit.

    Though there are no progressive candidates in this race, Holly Stanton is the best candidate to advocate for community needs in Legislative District 31, Position 1.

  • Carrie Wilbur is a Democrat challenging Republican Rep. Eric Robertson for the 31st Legislative District, Position 2 after making it on the ballot from a successful write-in campaign in the primary. Wilbur has been self-employed and previously worked as a caregiver. She was a co-founder and now serves as a board chair for the local nonprofit Out of the Gray, Caring for Caregivers.

    Wilbur is running to make her district a place where all residents can have their needs met and thrive. She wants to fight for self-determination in reproductive health care, balancing our state’s upside-down tax code, building racial equity, addressing homelessness preventatively through affordable housing solutions, and advocating for people with disabilities. Her progressive vision also includes advocating for caregivers of disabled loved ones who lack institutional support and are rarely paid for their work.

    Rep. Eric Robertson first served in the Legislature from 1994 to 1998 before switching to a career in law enforcement and then rejoining the state House in his current position in 2021. He is promoting a Trump Republican agenda that includes critiquing basic COVID safety guidelines, preventing schools from teaching age-appropriate sexual health education, and relying on over-policing to address addiction issues in our community. In the last session, he voted against commonsense gun safety legislation and updates to the state’s climate goals.

    Carrie Wilbur is the clear choice in this race and deserves your vote to take science seriously and put the community first.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

Outside of the Legislature, he has spent almost a decade at Microsoft as a senior program manager. He is running to put people over politics and keep helping Washingtonians access the resources they need to thrive.

    This year, Nguyen sponsored a bill to prohibit the sale of high-capacity firearm magazines and keep our communities safe from gun violence. He also supported Move Ahead Washington, a historic policy package that will upgrade the state’s public transportation while making it more accessible for all and reducing our environmental impact. Throughout his first term, Nguyen’s priorities have included working toward environmental justice, balancing our state’s upside-down tax code, reforming our broken criminal legal system, and making sure all Washingtonians have equitable opportunities.

    Nguyen faces a challenge from Republican John Potter, a paraeducator with the Highline School District and a member of the Teamsters Local 763. Potter would bring extremely conservative views to office if elected. He has a transphobic opinion of gender-affirming health services and wants to revoke our freedom to decide whether and when to grow our families by trying to ban safe, legal abortion. Potter’s approach to the housing crisis is to vilify our neighbors struggling to secure stable housing while cutting funding for the community services so many of us rely on.

    Joe Nguyen has fought to make our state a place where all families and communities can thrive. He deserves to be re-elected and is the clear choice in this race.

She was previously an organizer at Planned Parenthood and currently serves on the board of the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance, among several other leadership roles in community organizations.

    Alvarado's key issue is housing, and she states that her work helping long-standing residents in communities of color stay in their homes is indicative of her ability to build coalitions and have deep relationships with both constituents and elected leaders. In our interview with Alvarado, we found her to be one of the most knowledgeable candidates about housing we spoke with this year. She described very in-depth strategies to increase housing affordability through many means - tenant and homeowner protections, providing more housing types, public housing, and investing in organizations led by communities of color to reduce displacement, to name a few.

    In a time of deepening political divides, we appreciated her ethos - that our biggest problems are solvable, but we will need to take on more complex issues with greater transparency and discussion. For example, she believes homeownership can be a massive crosscutting issue across party lines, and that tackling the state's upside-down tax code and other issues needs more communication from Olympia.

    Since the primary, Alvarado has added several new organizations to her wide range of endorsing partners. We recommend Alvarado for her comprehensive housing plan and her broad support from our Progressive Voters Guide partner organizations.

  • School librarian Leah Griffin is an advocate for survivors of sexual assault. After police refused to test her rape kit, she worked with state officials on legislation that led to testing all 11,000 of the state's backlogged rape kits, passed a survivor's bill of rights, and more. Griffin also worked with Sen. Patty Murray on the federal Survivors’ Access to Supportive Care Act, founded the Sexual Assault Forensic Examination (SAFE) Task Force, and organized for the R-90 campaign for age-appropriate sexual health education.

    Griffin is now running for the Legislature to advocate for more access to behavioral health care, public safety reform, and affordable housing. In our interview with Griffin, she elaborated on the immense need for more behavioral and mental health care across the population - for frontline workers with PTSD, youth, teachers, people experiencing homelessness, and many others. She wants to see counselors embedded in union halls and wraparound services at shelters, giving care at the point of need where people can access it. As a victim of violent crime, Griffin states that a lack of behavioral health care, housing, and education are the undercurrents for crime, and putting people in prison without resources is morally bankrupt. Griffin also wants to see an increase in green energy like tidal power, community-centered child care programs, and greater unionization of workers.

    Both Griffin and Alvarado are progressive and support bills like the capital gains tax, which aim to flip Washington's deeply regressive tax code to stop favoring the ultra-wealthy. Griffin in particular is a good choice if you are looking for a candidate with a long record of grassroots advocacy who will focus on expanding health care access.

  • Environmental advocate Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon is running for re-election to Position 2 in the 34th Legislative District. Fitzgibbon worked as a legislative staffer and served on the Burien Planning Commission before joining the Legislature in 2010.

    Fitzgibbon is running for re-election to build on his impressive track record of success. He played a leading role in passing clean fuels legislation that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lead to cleaner air. In addition, he supported legislation to cut plastic bag pollution, reduce gender pay disparities, and improve gun safety laws.

    This session, Fitzgibbon also passed bills to streamline the permitting process for salmon recovery projects, increase the construction of affordable housing, and expand coverage of paid family and medical leave. His other priorities in office include addressing mass incarceration and inequities in our criminal legal system, expanding voting rights, and investing in public transportation.

    Software engineer and Republican Andrew Pilloud is running against Fitzgibbon to roll back many of these progressive victories. He does not have elected experience but volunteers with a robotics program. Pilloud's thin platform mentions mental health and addiction as the drivers of homelessness without addressing the cause that local housing experts have pointed to for years: the lack of affordable housing options. Pilloud also makes vague statements about criminals and a confusing statement about abortion that implies that he does not fully support the freedom of Washingtonians to decide whether and when we have children.

  • Rep. Noel Frame is running for the state Senate on a strong and progressive record of action in the state House. First elected as a representative in 2016, she previously served as the Washington state director of Progressive Majority, where she worked to recruit and elect progressive candidates from underrepresented communities. She has spent her time in Olympia advocating for working families, funding our public schools, and rebalancing our state's upside-down tax code.

    Frame had a particularly productive legislative session this year. She sponsored many of the progressive bills that passed into law, including limiting ghost guns, restricting guns in certain public areas, creating a system to locate missing Indigenous people, and creating middle housing near transit. Though the bill didn't pass this year, Frame also sponsored the wealth tax bill that would make the extraordinarily wealthy finally pay their share for the resources we all use. She has supported juvenile justice reform, expanded the number of families who qualify for child care assistance, and protected us from surprise medical billing by continuing to push for a progressive Washington.

    Frame faces planning and design consultant Kate Martin, who ran for Seattle City Council last year against Teresa Mosqueda, in 2019 against Councilmember Dan Strauss, and in 2013 for Seattle mayor.

    While Martin filed for office as a Democrat, her values and public statements make it clear that she's not progressive. In December of 2020, Martin stated that "I joined the GOP today" and claims to have re-joined the Democratic Party only recently. However, her Facebook page is an endless stream of Republican conspiracy theories and disinformation about unions, the LGBTQ community, homelessness, and people struggling with addiction.

    This race offers a clear contrast between a hard-working, proven leader in Olympia and a candidate who would block the kind of bold progressive reforms our communities need. While Martin filed for office as a Democrat, voters should know that her public statements reveal the truth about her far-right beliefs on a wide range of topics.

    Rep. Frame has been a strong advocate for the district and deserves your vote.

    Reed offers the most comprehensive and detailed policy proposals in this race, covering topics from housing to health. Reed recognizes that appropriate density is a must. Washington has the fewest units of housing per household of any state and market-rate, middle-income, affordable, duplexes, accessory dwelling units, and permanent supportive housing are all needed to alleviate the pressure. While working for the city of Seattle, Reed helped establish an internship program for Seattle Promise community college students. She wants to expand apprenticeship, technical college, and work-based learning opportunities to get students ready for jobs of the future.

    If elected, Reed would advocate for making zero-carbon transportation available in every city, including electrifying buses and ferries and expanding electric car infrastructure, among other climate priorities. Reed is one of the few candidates this year to show interest in a pilot program for universal basic income, which could be a game-changer for struggling families and working people.

    In our interview with Reed, she was thoughtful and informed about the ways that the Legislature could partner with and invest in communities of color, youth, and others to build a more resilient Washington. Since the primary, Reed has garnered even more support from progressive organizations for her forward-thinking priorities. For her deep experience and readiness to bring innovative solutions to Olympia, we recommend Julia Reed for the 36th Legislative District in Position 1.
