  • Attorney General Bob Ferguson is running for governor on his impressive record of advocating for all Washingtonians. He has served as attorney general since 2012 and has won some of the biggest and most consequential legal cases in Washington's history during that time.

    Ferguson has a long record of success in litigating against the Trump administration and greedy corporations. When Donald Trump attacked contraception access, Ferguson took him to court and won. Ferguson has sued the federal government to clean up the Hanford nuclear facility more quickly and has defended the Affordable Care Act from the Trump Administration, helping preserve care for 825,000 Washingtonians. Other wins include protecting statewide water quality from Trump's pro-pollution environmental policies, securing over $1 billion from opioid manufacturers to fund treatment, and fighting back against child detention laws.

    All of these wins echo Ferguson's priorities in running for governor: to continue fighting to improve health care access, protect consumers, and strengthen the rights of working families in Washington. If elected, he plans to scale up behavioral health care. Recognizing that currently "our jails are collectively our largest mental health provider," he is committed to a large number of interventions in our communities including prevention, adding more health providers, and more peer service support. He's also committed to breaking up corporate monopolies and reducing the cost of living, establishing Washington as a clean energy hub, and exploring high-speed rail infrastructure.

    Bob Ferguson is an accomplished progressive who leads with integrity and grit. He is the best choice to be the next governor of Washington.

  • State Senator and attorney Patty Kuderer is running for Washington Insurance Commissioner. She has served the 48th Legislative District since 2015 when she was appointed to the state House before being appointed to fill the Senate seat vacancy in 2017.

    Kuderer has been one of the most active sponsors of progressive bills in the Legislature. This year, she was the primary sponsor of a successful bill to ensure NARCAN is available in Washington schools. As a secondary sponsor, she helped to pass a slate of progressive bills, including ensuring that valid ballots are not unduly rejected, limiting the ability to bring firearms to public places like zoos, transit stations, and libraries, and aligning state and federal financial aid programs. Kuderer is now campaigning for insurance commissioner on a progressive platform that includes exploring universal health care, reducing auto insurance costs, expanding cancer screening for firefighters, and improving access to climate change insurance for homeowners and businesses.

    We recommend Patty Kuderer for Washington Insurance Commissioner because of her strong background in public service and clear vision for the office.

  • Tiffiny Mitchell is running for House Position 2 in the 26th Legislative District. Mitchell is a union member and works to connect Washingtonians with the state's Paid Family and Medical Leave program. Mitchell formerly served as a representative in the Oregon state House until she moved to Washington in 2021. Though Mitchell has moved, her progressive priorities haven't wavered from her service in Oregon, and she wants to enact policies that uplift working people if elected.

    During Mitchell's service as a state representative, she voted in favor of the Student Success Act, which invested $1 billion a year into Oregon public schools and early childhood education. In addition, she voted in favor of making polluters pay their share for carbon pollution, which led to a right-wing recall effort that she defeated. Mitchell also supported “missing middle” housing legislation that allowed for the construction of more duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes, and more.  At the top of Mitchell's priorities in Washington is protecting the right to abortion, expanding health care coverage, and shielding consumers from price gouging. She also wants to make further investments in infrastructure, including rural broadband and ferry workforce training.

    Mitchell would be a refreshing change for the 26th Legislative District in Olympia. She has earned your vote in this race.

  • Sen. Yasmin Trudeau is seeking another term representing the 27th Legislative District in the state Senate. She first joined the Senate when the Pierce County Council unanimously selected her to fill Sen. Jeannie Darneille’s seat in 2021. She has been re-elected to the seat since and has distinguished herself as a progressive voice. Outside of the Senate, she works as the Race Equity Unit manager for the Washington State Office of the Attorney General.

    In Olympia, Sen. Trudeau has made ambitious strides toward progress. Recently, she was the primary sponsor of a bill to reduce police violence by prohibiting the practice of hog-tying in the wake of the killing of Manuel Ellis by three Tacoma police officers. Trudeau was also a primary sponsor of bills to cover lactation consulting under Medicaid and offer voluntary professional licensing for providers, to increase middle housing options, to establish both Eid al-Fitr and Hannukah as state holidays, and to strengthen jury diversity so our criminal legal system functions more fairly. Her priorities have long centered on building safe and sustainable communities, including through investments in environmental protections, behavioral health services, accessible housing, food security, and more.

    Republican Carole Sue Braaten is challenging Trudeau this year. In 2012, she ran for a state House seat representing Legislative District 25 but did not make it past the primary. In this race, she has yet to release a campaign platform or website as of early June.

    Yasmin Trudeau is the best choice in this race for the Legislative District 27 senate seat.

Since 2020, she has served as the first woman and LBGTQ+ Speaker of the House in Washington.

  • Rep. Jamila Taylor is running for re-election to the 30th Legislative District, House Position 1. First elected in 2020, 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 she has additionally worked on youth intervention programs and other violence reduction efforts. Taylor is a former elected chair of the state Black Members Caucus, where she advocated for racial equity for all Washingtonians. She chairs the Developmental Advocacy Caucus and is the First Vice Chair of the Members of Color Caucus.

    In Taylor's second term, she sponsored several important bills, including creating an investigation unit for missing Indigenous women, developing opportunities for climate-ready workforce programs, and providing free school meals for hungry students. She's also secured millions of dollars locally for youth violence prevention programs, funding therapeutic court interventions for drug-related crimes, supporting small business development, adding transit-oriented housing near the Redondo Heights light rail station, and much more.

    Republican Melissa Hamilton is challenging Taylor from the right. Hamilton has worked in several positions in law enforcement, including as a records specialist and administrative assistant. Hamilton's agenda, including references to "classroom agendas outside of academics," echoes the state's larger conservative movement to ban books and prevent historically accurate discussions about race in schools. Hamilton's far-right values are clearly out of step with the voters of the 30th District.

    Taylor has been a stalwart advocate for progress for all. We recommend re-electing Jamila Taylor for the 30th Legislative District, Position 1.

She has also been a leader at a number of progressive organizations, including as the director of Seattle’s Office of Housing, an organizer with Planned Parenthood, and a board member of the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance.

    Alvarado had an impressive first term in Olympia. As a primary sponsor, she helped pass legislation to increase access to food assistance programs across the state.

She currently serves as chair of the Finance Committee in the House, where she plays a lead role in working to close tax loopholes and balance our state's upside-down tax code.

    First elected to the House in 2020, Berg spent her second term continuing her advocacy for youth, families, and an affordable Washington. This year she was the prime sponsor for Yori's Law, which aims to reduce child drowning deaths through increased access to swimming lessons and water safety awareness. She also sponsored bills to fund special education and worked previously to modernize transit, eliminate lunch co-pays for hungry students, and make menstrual products available for free in public school bathrooms.

    Berg is running against Sam Sim, the Snohomish County Republican Party's Community Outreach chair. Sim owns a teriyaki business along with an app-based food delivery service and a sauce line. In this campaign, he opposes the capital gains tax, which only applies to the 7,000 wealthiest people in the state who make more than $250,000 in profits from the sales of stocks and bonds. He also mentions supporting "parental rights," a catchall term that conservatives in Washington have been using to remove any discussion of race from schools and to ban books.

    Rep. April Berg is running for re-election to the 44th Legislative District, House Position 2. She is a former small business owner, director at the Everett School District, and a planning commissioner for the City of Mill Creek. She currently serves as chair of the Finance Committee in the House, where she plays a lead role in working to close tax loopholes and balance our state's upside-down tax code.

    First elected to the House in 2020, Berg spent her second term continuing her advocacy for youth, families, and an affordable Washington. This year she was the prime sponsor for Yori's Law, which aims to reduce child drowning deaths through increased access to swimming lessons and water safety awareness. She also sponsored bills to fund special education and worked previously to modernize transit, eliminate lunch co-pays for hungry students, and make menstrual products available for free in public school bathrooms.

    Berg is running against Sam Sim, the Snohomish County Republican Party's Community Outreach chair. Sim owns a teriyaki business along with an app-based food delivery service and a sauce line. In this campaign, he opposes the capital gains tax, which only applies to the 7,000 wealthiest people in the state who make more than $250,000 in profits from the sales of stocks and bonds. He also mentions supporting "parental rights," a catchall term that conservatives in Washington have been using to remove any discussion of race from schools and to ban books.

    April Berg has earned your vote for state House from the 44th Legislative District.

  • Rep. Darya Farivar is running for re-election for the 46th Legislative District, Position 2. She has worked as the public policy director with Disability Rights Washington, an organization that provides free services to people with disabilities and protects the rights of people with disabilities statewide. Farivar has also served as co-chair of the Seattle Women's Commission, policy chair of the State Special Education Advisory Council, and a board member of Peyvand, which supports Iranian students at UW.

    As the youngest member of the Legislature and the first Iranian American woman to ever serve, Farivar has focused on fulfilling her campaign promises to move Washington towards more affordable housing, criminal justice reform, and a higher, equitable standard of living. This year she introduced and championed three bills signed into law, including one that clarifies that task forces and advisory groups working on issues from underrepresented communities should have at least three people from that community on the panel. Farivar also passed a bill that protects the survivors of childhood sexual abuse by extending the statute of limitations on reporting the abuser, and another for antitrust protections that put heavier fines on big corporations who break the law. She also sponsored many bills that aim to increase housing availability, like one to increase "middle housing" in single-family neighborhoods, and other bills to protect voting.

    Challenging Farivar is Republican Simone Barron. She is the founder and director of Restaurant Workers of America, an "astroturf" group that promotes the interests of the restaurant lobby. Barron speaks proudly of testifying against raising the federal minimum wage for the restaurant industry at the federal, state, and local levels. She is also a Fox Business News contributor. She lists public safety, supporting small businesses by "restoring reasonable labor policy," and reducing the cost of living as priorities, though she doesn't give specifics past this.

    Barron would likely be a barrier to economic progress for working families, while Farivar has a demonstrated track record for helping Washingtonians of all walks of life secure their civil rights, housing, and more. Farivar is by far the best choice for state House from the 46th Legislative District.
