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.
