I would like to bring your attention to an exceptional candidate I am supporting for state representative. Her name is Tana Senn and she was appointed last fall when Marcie Maxwell left the legislature to serve as Gov. Inslee’s education adviser.
I had the pleasure of meeting Tana back in July when she was in my neighborhood knocking on doors and introducing herself to voters. She is a mom with two children in public schools, has local government experience, and a master’s in Public Administration.
Tana has an impressive background, but more importantly she has the right focus. As she put it, “We need to be focusing on the major issues effecting families, like fully funding education, improving transportation, and creating work place policies that allow us to raise kids and advance our careers.” I agree and I think we need more legislators who can bring a family oriented perspective to Olympia.
Since meeting Tana, I have been following her campaign and I’ve been pleased to see her support grow. She has been endorsed by seven Eastside mayors, by women’s and environmental groups, and was even featured in a Washington Post article reporting that “family centered policy proposals have taken center stage.”
Tana is the type of representative we need here in the 41st Legislative District. I hope you’ll join me in voting for her this November.
