Thank you for learning more about my campaign to serve as chair of the Washington State Democratic Party.
As an active, long-time member of the Party, I am proud of the work I’ve done to advance our shared progressive agenda – and prepared to provide the leadership and expertise to fulfill its promise and advance its mission.
Washington is a blue state, where the Democratic Party has been strong. But we have not always been able to take full advantage of our strength, or fully live up to our progressive potential. I intend to change that.
Right now we have a state Senate controlled, with the help of two turncoat Democrats, by right-wing Republicans. We have four Republican members of our Congressional delegation defending radical Tea Party efforts to block critical Democratic initiatives, undermine our national economy, and hold our government hostage. This is unacceptable.
As chair, I will make it a priority to regain control of the state Senate and elect Democrats up and down the ballot, and all across our state, using innovative campaign techniques and more effectively empowering our grassroots so we can move forward on creating real progressive change in both Washington State and Washington, D.C.
