• Sen. Patty Murray has been a consistent and strong progressive voice in the U.S. Senate. She's seeking re-election to continue fighting for our basic rights and a higher quality of life in Washington and beyond.

    Murray was first elected in 1992 and has been a champion for veterans, working families, women, and economic opportunities for all. Before her tenure in the Senate, Murray worked as a preschool teacher, on the Shoreline School Board, and in the Washington state Senate.

    During her time in Congress, Sen. Murray has worked hard to keep our communities safe from gun violence, pass abortion rights at the federal level so that everyone has reproductive freedom, and expand access to affordable childcare. This year, she voted in support of the Women’s Health Protection Act, the Freedom to Vote Act, and a slate of other progressive bills that invest in working communities so that our country is a place where everyone can thrive. Murray has earned an impressive and diverse coalition of endorsements from local and national organizations, elected leaders, and unions.

    Sen. Patty Murray is a national leader on many of the most important issues facing our country. She has earned your vote for re-election.

Congress

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 in the U.S. House to help Washingtonians and the rest of our country achieve stable housing, living affordability, family-wage jobs, and accessible health care. She has leveraged her tech background to balance consumer rights with innovation to create protections that benefit us all. DelBene was a key legislator in getting the Child Tax Credit passed and leads the effort to expand it going forward in order to keep putting cash back in the hands of working families and reducing 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.

    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.

  • Rep. Pramila Jayapal is running for re-election in the 7th Congressional District. She has a long history of civic leadership on immigration reform, economic justice, and civil liberties. Rep. Jayapal founded OneAmerica (formerly Hate Free Zone) in 2001 and built it into the largest immigrant rights organization in the state and a national model. She also played a key role on the Mayoral Advisory Committee that created Seattle’s $15 minimum wage, and this year secured $31 million in federal funding for community projects in the Seattle area, including housing, sciences, education, and the environment. 

     

    Since her election to Congress in 2016, Jayapal has resisted the Trump administration and conservative extremists at every turn and provided a voice for progressives across the country. She has supported the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the Dream Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for young DACA recipients. She also introduced legislation to expand collective bargaining and provide relief to workers and businesses during the pandemic. More recently, she has called for a national women's strike in response to the Supreme Court's ban on abortion and the curtailing of reproductive freedom across the country. Jayapal is also seeking to codify a transgender bill of rights to protect our country from the erosion of trans civil rights. 

     

    Jayapal is responsive to her constituents and has held over 100 town halls during her time in Congress. She is the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and has been one of the strongest progressive advocates in Washington for the needs of all in this country. Pramila Jayapal has earned your vote.

  • Dr. Kim Schrier is seeking re-election to her seat in the U.S. House representing Washington’s 8th Congressional District. Before serving two terms in Congress, she worked as a pediatrician and ran a local pediatric practice in Issaquah caring for kids and families across the region.

    Elected in 2018 as the first Democrat to hold the seat, Schrier has consistently brought her community values and professional health expertise to Congress. Unlike her Republican opponents, Schrier would support a federal law protecting reproductive freedom for all Americans. This term, Schrier supported the bipartisan infrastructure bill that will provide essential funding to improve local roads and bridges, as well as $19 million dollars for pedestrian safety projects in the 8th District alone. She also voted for Build Back Better, which would provide funding for early education, extend the child tax credit, reduce the cost of child care, and combat climate change. If re-elected, Schrier wants to prioritize the everyday needs of working families as well as be a compelling changemaker on public health issues like affordable prescriptions, gun violence prevention, clean air, and fresh groceries.

    Schrier has been a standout member of Congress working across party lines to get things done for her district. She has earned your vote for re-election.

Other Candidates

This race has attracted a slate of Republicans who are all running to win the support of the conservative base in the primary.

Republican King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn is challenging Schrier for the seat his mother once held. Over the last 17 years, Dunn has been a consistent obstacle to progress on the council. This May, Dunn cast the sole “no” vote on a resolution expressing the council's opposition to overturning Roe v. Wade and support for abortion rights. During the height of the pandemic, Dunn voted against hazard pay for essential workers and opposed protections for renters who were on the verge of losing their homes.

Republican Jesse Jensen is running to challenge Rep. Schrier for a second time. He is an Army veteran and works at a national real estate software corporation. Jensen’s divisive campaign priorities include tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy, dehumanizing border policies, and inaccurate school curriculums that erase some of us from the history books. Jensen wants to cut the community investments that help keep working families afloat and improve the quality of life for us all.

Also in this race is former Pierce County Deputy Prosecutor Matt Larkin. Like Jensen, Larkin is running on a MAGA Republican platform to erase Washington’s diverse communities from our students’ history books, increase the militarization and reach of police forces into our neighborhoods, and scapegoat those struggling the most in our communities instead of supporting policies that help us meet our basic needs and have the chance to succeed.

At this critical moment for reproductive freedom, our economy, and our country, these extreme Republicans would drag our district backward instead of bringing us together to find common solutions.

  • Democrat Adam Smith is running for a 13th term representing Washington's 9th Congressional District. Prior to running for Congress, Smith worked as a lawyer, a prosecutor in the City of Seattle, and as a state senator. He represents Washington's most diverse district, which is home to 30 percent foreign-born residents and large Asian, Latino, and Black communities.

    Smith has been a reliable Democratic vote in Congress on issues from taxation to immigration reform. Last year, Smith supported both the bipartisan infrastructure bill and Build Back Better, President Biden's more ambitious effort to fund clean energy, child tax credits, and other progressive priorities. Unlike some of his moderate colleagues, Smith sponsored both the Green New Deal and the Medicare for All Act last year. In previous years, he supported the pandemic relief package and the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act to dramatically increase accountability and transparency.

    Smith is the chair of the powerful House Armed Services Committee, having served on the committee since 1997. Some progressives, including his opponent Stephanie Gallardo, have criticized Smith for his more hawkish foreign policy stances. In this role, Smith wrote and introduced the annual defense spending bill, which reached a record $768 billion in 2022.

    Smith is running for re-election focused on creating jobs and expanding access to health care. He pledges to continue fighting for Medicare for All and wants to protect and expand Social Security.

    Smith's seniority and experience make him an influential voice for us in the other Washington. He's a good choice for steady, thoughtful leadership representing our communities.

  • Stephanie Gallardo is a progressive teacher and first-generation Chilean American challenging Rep. Smith this year. She lived on the University of Washington campus until she was 10 years old while her parents were finishing their education. She has taught history in the Tukwila School District and was elected to serve on the Washington Education Association board.

    Gallardo's lived experience has shaped her platform and campaign for office. She supports Rep. Jamaal Bowman's Green New Deal for Public Schools Act, which would invest billions in green retrofits for school buildings, hire hundreds of thousands of new educators, and improve accessibility on campuses. She would also back Sen. Cory Booker's legislation to provide comprehensive and medically accurate sexual health education for all students.

    Foreign policy is Gallardo's other top priority. During our interview, she stated that her family's escape from Chile as political refugees showed the danger of our country's "expansionist foreign policy." If elected, she would add her name to Rep. Jayapal's bill to prohibit the U.S. from aiding Saudi Arabia in their war with Yemen. She also wants to redirect some of the historically large defense budget that Smith writes to invest in education and fighting climate change. On community safety, Gallardo expressed support for revoking immunity for gun manufacturers, banning assault weapons, and prohibiting the military from transferring powerful equipment to law enforcement.

    Gallardo's platform and experience offer a clear contrast for voters looking for a progressive alternative, particularly on foreign policy, to Rep. Smith.

  • Democrat Steve Hobbs is running to retain his position as secretary of state for the remainder of the two-year term. He is a first-generation Japanese American and 30-year member of the military, serving tours in Kosovo and Iraq before becoming a lieutenant colonel in the Washington Army National Guard.

    Hobbs was appointed as secretary of state in November of last year after Kim Wyman resigned to join the Biden administration. Prior to his appointment, he served four terms in the Washington state Senate representing the 44th Legislative District. His voting record was consistently progressive on social issues and more conservative on taxes, environmental issues, and workers' rights.

    During his first eight months in office, Hobbs has been laser-focused on protecting our electoral systems from attacks. He has used his background in national security to partner closely with the Department of Homeland Security to stop digital threats to our voting systems, both foreign and domestic. Hobbs also understands the challenge misinformation poses to the integrity of our elections. He has been working to set up a division within his office specifically to combat misinformation and wants to work closely with social media companies to ensure they take down dangerous conspiracy theories.

    As many things re-open from the pandemic, Hobbs is committed to restarting his office's voter outreach program. He is very enthusiastic about a trusted messenger program he's launching to utilize community leaders to talk about the importance of voting. He also wants to improve outreach to reduce the racial disparities in rejected ballots because of signature mismatches.

    The only issue of concern with Hobbs is his personal opposition to ranked choice voting. During our interview, he shared that he's concerned about implementing a complicated new voting system at a moment of low trust in our elections. He is particularly concerned that voters like his mother, who speaks English as a second language, will have a difficult time learning and participating in the new system.

    Hobbs made a compelling case that the secretary of state must adapt to the new and complex challenges of running modern elections. Hobbs is a good choice if you're looking for someone with national security experience to safeguard and rebuild trust in our electoral system.

  • Pierce County Auditor Julie Anderson is running as a nonpartisan candidate to bring an independent voice to the secretary of state's office. Anderson served on the Tacoma City Council before running for county auditor in 2009 and winning re-election three times. As Pierce County auditor, which is a nonpartisan position, she has administered dozens of elections while also overseeing licensing and public record-keeping.

    Anderson is running as a nonpartisan candidate because she believes political parties shouldn't be involved in running elections they are simultaneously trying to win. Her campaign priorities include supporting more local races becoming nonpartisan, increasing access to voting and election information, and improving election security. She wants to translate the voters' pamphlet into 10 languages, going beyond what is mandated by the Voting Rights Act. She also wants to conduct risk-limiting audits in all 39 Washington counties and "pre-bunk" rumors to increase confidence in our state's election systems.

    While Hobbs spoke more about using cybersecurity to protect our elections, Anderson leaned on her professional expertise to describe ways to expand our democracy. She believes, for example, that the state should redouble its efforts to reach voters with disabilities. By using a secure, expert-vetted electronic ballot similar to those used for overseas military voters, Anderson sees a path forward to reach those who don't always have access to vote.

     

    During our interview, Anderson expressed support for ranked choice voting because she believes it will allow candidates to break through our two-party political system. She supports grants for local jurisdictions that are interested in trying ranked choice voting so that it's not unduly expensive for local governments, and so that auditors can learn more about how to manage and implement it.

    Anderson offers voters an experienced option if they are looking for an independent to administer our state's elections.

    Evergreen Future
    Evergreen Future
  • Incumbent Rep. Davina Duerr is running for re-election to the 1st Legislative District, Position 1. Duerr joined the House in 2019 when she replaced Derek Stanford when he 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 for state representative 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 issues such as data privacy protections, treating gambling addiction as a health issue, and gun safety in the Legislature. 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 and 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 mid-July, 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.

  • Rep. Bill Ramos is running for re-election in Legislative District 5, Position 1 to continue bringing people-first leadership to the district. He first joined the Legislature in 2019 after previously serving on the Issaquah City Council and working as a transportation consultant.

    Ramos is running to continue working to make our communities safer by strengthening police accountability measures, investing in public infrastructure, and protecting our local ecosystems. He is also prioritizing economic security and living affordability for the district by expanding housing options and addressing our state’s upside-down tax code.

    Ramos has already made progress on these issues in Olympia. He sponsored a bill to provide law enforcement compliance audits this past session. In addition, he voted for the historic Move Ahead Washington package that will invest in increased transit access alongside much-needed upgrades to our transportation infrastructure.

    Ramos faces a challenge this year from Kenneth Moninski. He has spent his career in the aviation industry, running communications and media businesses. In 2020, he ran unsuccessfully for this same position on a shallow and typically conservative platform with an endorsement from the NRA. In this election, Moninski's platform focuses on opposing efforts to strengthen police accountability in our state while cutting the funding needed to deliver quality schools, affordable health care, and good-paying jobs that ensure all of our families can thrive.​

    Bill Ramos is the clear choice for House Position 1 in Legislative District 5.

    Callan has worked hard for positive change in Washington including improving economic security for working families and investing in our youth and public education. This year, she was named an Advocate for Affordable Housing by Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County for her work to expand housing options for all. Callan introduced two bills to protect students’ mental health and legislation to promote safety from surgical smoke for both health care workers and patients. In this race, she has earned strong community endorsements due to her consistent leadership and progressive values.

    Republican Chad Magendanz is running once again for the Legislature, this time challenging Callan. He is a former Microsoft program manager who previously served as the president of the Issaquah School Board and in the state House from 2013 to 2017. Magendanz stepped down to run for state Senate in 2016, losing to Sen. Mark Mullet, and then ran again for state House in 2018 and lost to Rep. Bill Ramos.

    While in the Legislature, Magendanz maintained a conservative track record, including being the sole East King County legislator of either party to vote against a transportation bill that would've reduced traffic gridlock on the I-405 corridor. Magendanz is running to cut corporate oversight laws that protect workers, consumers, and the environment. Magendanz is proud of his "A" rating from the National Rifle Association during his last campaign, which raises questions about his willingness to keep our communities safe from gun violence.

    Rep. Callan is the clear choice in this race and deserves to be re-elected to Position 2 in the 5th Legislative District.

  • 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 with focuses 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, protecting the sensitive information of currently or formerly incarcerated Washingtonians, creating a tax exemption for organizations maintaining affordable housing, and increasing access to electricity as a transportation fuel for all Washingtonians. Hackney is running for re-election to continue investing in a clean energy future, tackle the housing crisis, and build 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 mid-July, Peter has no campaign website to detail her priorities, choosing to instead link to the local Republican legislative district site.

    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, allow young people to pre-register to vote, 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.

    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. While only a bare-bones website and no detailed policy agenda available as of mid-July, Burrage's primary concern based on her official voter's guide statement seems to be denying kids a modern education. Every child, no matter their zip code, background, or color, deserves to see themselves and their experiences in history. Writing out race in every part 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.

  • Sen. Claire Wilson was elected to the Senate in 2018 and serves as the assistant majority whip. Prior to her election, she spent 25 years as an administrator of early childhood education at the Puget Sound Educational Services District and has served in many community leadership roles, including on the PTA, Citizens for Federal Way Schools, and the Building Better Futures Board, among others.

    This year, Wilson sponsored bills to invest in transportation, including ferry upgrades and free rides for kids on transit, as well as the successful gun safety measure of limiting high-capacity magazines. She also sponsored the wealth tax, an effort to make Washington's extraordinarily wealthy residents finally pay their share of the resources we all use. As an expert in education and youth, Wilson also sponsored a bill that will expand accessible and affordable childcare and early education programs.

    Wilson faces two challengers from the right: Linda Kochmar and Mark Christie. Former state representative and Federal Way Council President Linda Kochmar's bullet point agenda provides little detail on what she plans to do if elected, but she has opposed making the wealthy pay what their owe our communications and her legislative record received a "D" grade from Pro-Choice Washington. Kochmar is one of the more conservative members of the Federal Way City Council, going so far as to oppose hazard pay for grocery workers at the height of the pandemic.

    Christie also ran for this seat in 2020. His MAGA agenda and website disparage some of the core components of strong communities, such as free and accessible education and healthcare for everyone. His "solution" for the district is to make cities Republican strongholds.

    Wilson has been a solid legislator and a mover of progressive policies in the Senate, especially for kids and families. She deserves your vote in the 30th Legislative District.

  • 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 has three Republican opponents this year. 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. 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 education, addressing the housing crisis, and more.

    Republican Janis Clark is a perennial candidate who has run for many offices over the years, including Tacoma City Council, legislative representative, and mayor of Tacoma. She was removed from the Pierce County Charter Commission in 2005 after a court record of a military court-martial conviction was discovered. Though she has a bare-bones agenda available on her site, noting that she will support military families and pour more money into policing, Clark's failed 2020 run for the 30th Legislative District showed that she would support a very conservative agenda if elected.

    Finally, Iraq veteran Paul McDaniel characterizes poverty and people struggling in the community as "moral decay." He promises to combat this by pouring more community resources into law enforcement, rather than connecting people with the health, job, and housing resources they need to thrive.

    The 30th District doesn't need more abrasive and divisive rhetoric. As we begin to recover from the pandemic, the district needs someone who can bring together communities and write legislation that works for everyone. Taylor 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 is a current Washington State Gambling Commissioner and 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 childcare more affordable. She is motivated to address affordable housing and homelessness by her experience growing up as a foster child and being homeless herself at times. Reeves also wants to see childcare workers compensated more fairly, advocate for military families and veterans, and protect abortion rights by closing conservative "crisis pregnancy centers" that pretend to offer abortion services, and greater climate action.

    While Reeves has been progressive on several issues, she's taken a more cautious approach than the ones proposed by Anderson on several pieces of legislation, 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.

  • Rev. Dr. Carey Anderson is running for state Senate in the 30th Legislative District to leverage his long history of community building for the benefit of all the district's residents. Anderson has served on several community organizations, including Democrats for Diversity and Inclusion, Washington Equity Now Alliance, and King County Regional Homelessness Authority. His leadership role as pastor in the historically Black First African Methodist Episcopal Church offers a different perspective than most elected officials in Olympia.

    Anderson is unique among many candidates this year in that a large part of his work has been direct-to-community service through his church. He describes the $31 million housing project, with nearly 200 units of affordable housing, free produce and grocery drives, and vaccination sites as some of the direct impacts he's contributed as a church leader. First A.M.E. owns several hundred units of affordable housing across at least 13 buildings as of 2019, and Anderson wants to see the state lead on more housing, including units with wraparound services for those with additional behavioral health needs. In contrast to his opponent Reeves, Anderson backed zoning changes that would allow for more types of homes to be built as well as potentially lifting the statewide ban on rent control.

    On social and economic issues, Anderson wants to see more economic investment in communities of color. Specifically, he noted that he's working with the Washington State Cannabis Alliance of African Americans to expand Black cannabis businesses. He also supports efforts like the wealth tax, which would create more equity for middle- and lower-income Washingtonians by finally making the extraordinarily wealthy pay their share. On the environment, Anderson supports a cap on statewide greenhouse gas emissions among other measures and he recently reaffirmed his support for abortion.

    Anderson is a good choice if you're looking for a candidate who is deeply rooted in and experienced in advocating for the community.

Other Candidates

There are two Republican candidates in this race as well. C. Mark Greene is a perennial candidate who has run for various offices yearly, from lieutenant governor to mayor of Federal Way, since 2019. This year, his platform includes a partial immigration moratorium and supporting the 2nd Amendment.

Also running is 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.

Tagoai's far-right agenda would drag the 30th Legislative District backward.

    Chris Vance

    Evergreen Future
    Evergreen Future
  • Chris Vance is challenging MAGA Republican incumbent 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.”

    Also in this race is fringe candidate Clifford Knopik, a far-right candidate running without a party preference for the Senate seat. Knopik seems to be campaigning on the single conspiracy theory that the pandemic was a governmental lie. 

    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, access health care, housing, and quality education. 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.

    Also in this race is Brandon Beynon, a commercial construction business owner and Republican precinct committee officer. Beynon is running on a vague, typically conservative platform to block policies that invest in our communities while prioritizing the interests of big businesses and the wealthy few.

    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.

  • 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, such as in 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 two challengers in this race: Democrat Patricia Weber and Independent Evelyn Anthony. 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.

    Reverend Evelyn Anthony describes herself as a hip hop activist, alchemy artist, and actor. Her campaign website includes few specific policies as of mid-July, but Anthony’s guiding campaign principles include accountability, election integrity, and working on behalf of past and future generations. Without demonstrated community leadership experience or clear legislative objectives, it is unclear how serious of a candidate she is or even what policies she would support.

    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 won this seat for the first time 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 MAGA Republicans who tried to overturn the will of the people last presidential election. As of mid-July, her website is not accessible.

    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 like prohibiting the sale of high-capacity firearm magazines and setting 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 an available campaign website or priorities listed as of mid-July 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 MAGA Republicans who tried to overturn the will of the people last presidential election.

Before joining the Legislature in 1995, she spent 25 years working for the Washington State Labor Council.

    In Olympia, Sen. Keiser is committed to improving the affordability of prescription drugs, strengthening workplace safety and security, and expanding accessible housing for all. This year, she was one of the sponsors of a bill to address our state's upside-down tax code. Keiser also recently voted in favor of a bill to prohibit guns in certain government and voting spaces as well as legislation to set new environmental protection goals for the state.

  • Incumbent Sen. Joe Nguyen is running to continue bringing strong progressive leadership to the state Senate from the 34th Legislative District, where he has served since 2018. 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 justice system, and making sure all Washingtonians have equitable opportunities.

    Nguyen faces a challenge from four candidates in this race. Republican John Potter is 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.

    Tony Mitchum, who has worked in the restaurant and insurance industries, is running without stating a party preference. He lacks community leadership experience and does not have a campaign website as of mid-July. However, if elected, he says he wants to bring some health care services to residents, privatize employment agencies, and offer free breakfast and lunches to kids.

    Local cafe owner Amber Bennett is also in this race as an Independent. Though she is running on a platform to put community first, she has opposed raising the minimum wage so that, as living costs rise, working families can afford the basics like rent, health care, groceries, and gas. Bennett would prioritize business owners and said she wants to work with cell phone companies to disallow students from accessing the internet while at school. She is not a progressive candidate.

    Goodspaceguy is a perennial candidate who runs with empty, conservative platforms to oppose progressive incumbents in King County. He is not a serious candidate and his campaign ideas are obstacles to making our communities safer, healthier, more affordable, and equitable.

    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.

  • Attorney Emily Alvarado has spent five years working at Seattle’s Office of Housing, including two as its director. 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.

    We recommend Alvarado for her comprehensive housing plan and her broad support from our Progressive Voters Guide partner organizations.

  • School librarian Leah Griffin is a statewide 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 homeless, and many others. She wants to see counselors embedded in union halls and wraparound services at shelters, specifically, 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 childcare programs, and greater unionization of workers.

    Both Griffin and Alvarado are broadly 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 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.

    Fitzgibbon’s top focus is the environment, and he is running for re-election to build on his impressive track record of success. Fitzgibbon played a leading role 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, he 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 justice system, expanding voting rights, and investing in public transportation.

Pilloud's policy details are not comprehensive. He 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 for ourselves 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 creating a more equitable society by removing systemic discrimination and barriers for people of color.

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

    Her opponent in this race is planning and design consultant Kate Martin, who ran and lost races in the City of Seattle three times since 2013. She also launched I-123 in 2016 to preserve the Alaskan Way Viaduct, which 83% of Seattle voters rejected.

    While Martin filed for office as a Democrat, her values and voters' pamphlet statement 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. In contrast, as of mid-July Martin's campaign website does not include campaign priorities beyond vague platitudes about moderation and bipartisanship.

    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.

Reed has worked in several levels of government, including in Obama's State Department as a Special Envoy for Middle East Peace, as a senior policy advisor for workforce development in the Seattle mayor's office, and most recently as a public policy consultant. Reed is also the former chair of the 36th Legislative District Democrats, a current volunteer board member for the YMCA Social Impact Center, and a board member at Fuse Washington, which produces this guide.

    Among the candidates in this district, Reed has the most comprehensive and detailed policy proposals, 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. When working at the City of Seattle, Reed helped establish an internship program for Seattle Promise community college students and 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. For her deep experience and readiness to bring innovative solutions to Olympia, we recommend Julia Reed for Legislative District 36, Position 1.

  • Jeff Manson is an administrative law judge who is running for office to boost opportunities for workers and working families and to fund the services we all rely on. He has served as a precinct committee officer, the chair of the 36th District Democrats for eight years, and the board chair of the disability rights group Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE), among other leadership experience.

    In our interview with Manson, he described himself as the labor candidate in the race, and mentioned that with the departure of incumbents like Rep. Mike Sells, the House needs more support for working people. However, we were disappointed that Manson stated that he is ready to pour more money into the criminal justice system and militarized police without speaking specifically on how he would ensure we all feel safe, especially for communities of color.

    Manson acknowledges that the state is extremely behind on the number of housing units needed for everyone to have a roof over their head and a door that locks, including people experiencing homelessness. To that end, he supports a housing-first approach to homelessness that includes tiny homes and accessory dwelling units. He also supports flipping the state's upside-down tax code, which is the most regressive in the nation, and a reduction of carbon emissions by half by 2030.

  • Nicole Gomez is running on the motto of creating an economy that works for everyone. She works on the Universal Health Care Commission and is the co-founder of healthcare policy nonprofit Alliance for a Healthy Washington. In addition, she's the executive director of the Institute for a Democratic Future which trains future Democratic policy leaders. Gomez has also served as chair of the 36th District Democrats and is a current precinct committee officer.

    In our interview with Gomez, she described how her family became homeless due to the illness of a family member when she was young, which has spurred her to fight for working families. She is supportive of bills like Rep. Bateman's middle housing bill, which if passed would have created opportunities for homes like triplexes and duplexes near transit. For people who need housing and behavioral health, Gomez also supports wraparound services. As a member of the policy committee of the Balance Our Tax Code coalition, she is ready to support policies like a wealth tax on extraordinarily high earners, which would help flip Washington's status as having the most regressive tax code in the nation.

    Crone wants to see urgent action on the housing crisis, including housing with wraparound services for those who need additional support. If elected, she would work to create more partnerships in the Legislature for immigrant and Indigenous issues, with leadership coming from those communities themselves.

    In our interview with Crone, she stated that she was ready to be an ally and follow the lead of experienced legislators on climate, housing, racial justice, and other issues.

  • Democrat Liz Berry is running unopposed for re-election to the 36th Legislative District in House Position 2. Berry is the former director of the Washington State Association of Justice, which advocates for the legal rights of patients, consumers, and injured workers. She also previously served as the president of the National Women's Political Caucus and on the board of NARAL Pro-Choice Washington.

    Berry had a prolific first session as a legislator on many progressive priorities this year. She sponsored successful community safety initiatives to restrict untraceable ghost guns and to prohibit carrying guns in certain settings like school board meetings, which is especially notable for Berry as the former legislative director to Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. Berry also sponsored the creation of an alert system for missing Indigenous people. If that weren't enough, she worked to flip the state's regressive tax code with a wealth tax and supported important legislation to expand housing options near transit.

    Berry has had a successful first term and deserves your vote.

  • Rep. Sharon Tomiko Santos is running for re-election to Legislative District 37, Position 1. Santos formerly worked in banking, politics, and nonprofit management before joining the Legislature in 1998. She is a moderate Democrat and the longest-serving representative of color in Washington’s history.

    Though she took a disappointing stance against comprehensive sex education in 2020, Santos has been an advocate for economic justice, civil rights, and environmental action. This year, she took important votes to advance gun safety, set new environmental goals, and create a more equitable criminal justice system. If re-elected, Santos wants to invest in education, health care, and housing so that all Washingtonians have an equal opportunity to thrive.

    Her opponent is Republican John Dickinson, who does not appear to have significant elected or community leadership experience. His platform is somewhat confusing, but two of his main goals are to "legalize cannabis" and restore the Comet Lodge graveyard. If elected, Dickinson promises to only serve one term.

    Rep. Tomiko Santos is the best choice in this race.

  • Emijah Smith's decades-long record of advocacy shows her commitment to the people of the 37th District. As a deeply rooted community organizer, Smith wants to bring the voices and needs of the community to the forefront through investment in small businesses, trauma-informed health care, and racial justice.

    In our interview with Smith, she spoke of how the war on drugs in the Central District inspired her to become an advocate for her community. After years of working with the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic, she worked at Solid Ground with those experiencing housing and food insecurity and spent 11 years organizing in Olympia as a community engagement manager at the Children’s Alliance.

    If elected, Smith wants to prioritize flexible after-school programs, access to addiction services, and truly affordable child care. While Smith and Bulale share an emphasis on public education, Smith has served as PTSA president and vice president of the Seattle Public Schools PTSA. Her experience in advocating for her own children in local district meetings - which led to bigger investments for marginalized students - is unique in this race.

    Among the candidates, Smith also had the most to say about combating gentrification by ending predatory real estate development practices. She was also the only candidate to discuss the need to support survivors of domestic violence by unraveling the difficult knot of laws and procedures around getting protection. Smith's notable endorsements include King County Councilmember Girmay Zahilay, Rep. Tarra Simmons, Rep. Jamila Taylor, and former King County Councilmember Larry Gossett, all of whom are outstanding advocates for racial justice and community building.

    If you are looking for a candidate with the longest record of work in the community and who centers Black liberation, self-determination, and local knowledge, Smith is a great choice.

  • Chipalo Street is running to improve education, expand economic opportunities, and close the digital divide. He works in Microsoft's office of the CTO as a senior leader on emerging technology. He also serves on the board of the Institute for Democratic Future, which trains up-and-coming Democratic civic leaders, and is the co-founder of the Teacher Scientist Partnership at Technology Access Foundation Academy, which teaches a computer science curriculum in south Seattle.

    In our interview with Street, he was unique among the candidates in his focus on technology education. Street believes that Washington can lead the nation in STEM education and that the Legislature can do more for students by funding free two-year college. He is also a landlord who believes that tenants and owners should work in partnership. He emphasized that during the pandemic he was able to keep all his tenants housed despite a third of them losing work. He supports tenant protections, rental assistance, housing vouchers, and ending exclusionary zoning in transit areas, which would bring more housing options like triplexes and duplexes.

    Street's notable endorsements include Port Commissioners Hamdi Mohamed and Sam Cho, King County Councilmember Rod Dembowski, and Tukwila City Councilmember Mohamed Abdi, who all emphasized Street's work in his small business, civic leadership, and values around housing.

    If you are looking for a candidate who is pushing for digital inclusion in the 37th Legislative District, Street would be a good choice.

  • Endorsed By: The Stranger, The Urbanist
  • Flight attendant Andrew Ashiofu is running to bring relief to working people who have struggled before, during, and after the pandemic. As a frontline worker, he saw a 60 percent reduction in his income during the pandemic and wants to harness that experience to create more economic opportunities for families in the district and beyond. He serves on the King County HIV Planning Council, the Harborview Madison Clinic Community Advisory Board, and the Washington State Department of Health COVID Vaccine Implementation Council.

    Having experienced homelessness in his youth when he came out as gay and lost his job, Ashiofu agrees with his fellow candidates on many housing policies. Specifically, he opposes zoning laws that limit housing to single-family homes and he supports increasing housing choices near transit. He believes that a New Deal-sized housing plan should be the way forward in Washington and that the state should be looking beyond just shelters at this point and creating more homes with wraparound mental health services.

    In our interview with Ashiofu, he described how his experience as an HIV-positive patient exposed the flaws in our medical system. He saw the dangers of having health care be tied to our jobs and the limits on when free and reduced services can be accessed. Like other candidates in this race, Ashiofu is determined to invest in better mental health care, as well as health care that can be accessed no matter your race, job status, or what zip code you live in. Notable endorsements for Ashiofu include former King County Councilmember Larry Gossett, Nicole Thomas Kennedy, and the King County Young Democrats.

    Ashiofu's focus and experience in healthcare stand out in this race. If you are looking for a candidate with lived experience around healthcare accessibility for intersectional communities and a determination to expand it, Ashiofu would be a good choice.

  • Adjunct professor Nimco Bulale is running to prioritize affordable housing and make education more inclusive for all students. As a refugee from Somalia and the child of a single mother, Bulale has emphasized the need for schools and social services to work for everyone, no matter what community you come from.

    Bulale has previously worked as a program director at the East African Community Services, a consultant for the city of Seattle's Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs, and an education organizer with OneAmerica. She also serves on the executive board of the Southeast Seattle Education Coalition, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and the King County Immigrant and Refugee Commission.

    As an expert in education policy, Bulale is an advocate for inclusive education, including bilingual education at the state level. In our interview, Bulale noted the many ways that overlapping identities affect the district's residents. For many, housing is only affordable in intergenerational households, childcare providers are predominantly immigrant women, and many Black families are being pushed out of the majority of zip codes in major cities due to unaffordability. If elected, Bulale wants to address all this and more with a commitment to increasing green jobs, preventing the exploitation of working people and making communities safer with more laws for gun violence prevention. Her notable endorsements include a sole recommendation from the 37th District Democrats and the Alliance for Gun Responsibility.

    If you are looking for a candidate with direct experience advocating for immigrant communities and education policy, Bulale would be a great choice.

  • Rep. Tana Senn is running for re-election to the 41st Legislative District in Position 1, where she has served since 2013. As a working mother, Senn has aimed to be a champion for Washington’s families and currently chairs the Children, Youth & Families Committee.

    Senn has been a strong voice for preventing gun violence, making child care more affordable, working towards pay equity, and expanding mental health services and resources. This session, she voted for legislation to prohibit the sale of high-capacity firearm magazines and a bill to set new state carbon reduction goals. She has also sponsored legislation to establish the Washington State Office of Equity and require the state to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, pointing our state in the right direction to fight climate change. One of the few disappointments in Senn's progressive track record was her opposition to the missing middle housing bill this year that would have improved affordability by allowing more dense housing options near transit. If re-elected, Senn will continue to prioritize public education investments, environmental protections, and keeping our communities safe from gun violence.

    Senn faces a challenge from Republican Mike Nykreim, who is technically running under the Election Integrity Party. His main priority for running is to question election security, echoing the conspiracy theories of the extremists who tried to overturn the will of the people last presidential election. As of mid-July, Nykreim's website is not accessible.

    Rep. Senn has been a strong advocate for her district and is the clear choice in this race.
