Statement: In my decades as an advocate, I've promoted the well-being of families, fought for low-income housing; and ensured underrepresented populations have a champion in the community. I lead by example-by working collaboratively and building diverse coalitions to solve complex challenges-and listen to those left out of the decision-making process. We must put our communities' priorities first. We must fund more low-income housing, transportation, and public education and we shouldn't tax people out of their homes to pay for it. Endorsed by Attorney General Bob Ferguson, Washington State Labor Council, and others.
