Statement: Orwall’s intellectual curiosity and
hard work make her one of the strongest lawmakers in Olympia– Seattle Times, 9/15/14. Tina
works collaboratively to find solutions to complex problems including suicide
prevention, child trafficking, foreclosure, truancy, and student debt. Her
legislation requiring rape kit testing and tracking has been nationally
recognized. These bills give law enforcement tools to keep dangerous predators
off our streets.
I am honored to serve you in
Olympia. With your support, I want to continue fighting for fully funding
our schools, ensuring opportunity for all, supporting our veterans, and
protecting the safety net for those in need.
