Statement: Partisan gridlock and wealthy special interests continue to block progress in our state. It’s time for a change. We need independent leaders with integrity and determination to focus on our priorities and get Olympia back on track.
That’s why Colonel Marisa Peloquin (USAR) is running for State Senate. Marisa is a military leader and business professional, who has risen through the ranks over the last 28 years. She got to where she is today because of hard work, dedication and a proven track record of results. When Marisa hears a good idea, it doesn’t matter who it comes from. She’ll work across party lines – and won’t take no for an answer – to get positive results for us.
Marisa’s top priority is ensuring effective, transparent, and accountable state government that gives all of us – not just wealthy special interests – a strong voice in Olympia. She will stand up for veterans, middle class families, and seniors by re-investing in our schools, leveling the playing field for small businesses, improving public safety, and ensuring our tax dollars are invested wisely in our community.
Marisa is the proven leader we can trust to get Olympia back on track.
