When Washington legislative session starts back up in January, our state will be facing three crises:
Crisis #1: COVID-19. Thanks to the Trump administration's continued (and inexplicably proud) mismanagement of the novel coronavirus, nearly 80,000 Washingtonians have contracted the virus, and we've got a long way to go before it's contained.
Crisis #2: Recession. Skyrocketing unemployment means tens of thousands of Washington families are wondering how they'll make ends meet - pay rent, put food on the table, pay for health care - as we head into the winter.
Crisis #3: Budget. As a result, our state is facing a shortfall of more than $8 billion right when folks need relief more than ever.
That means our state needs leaders who know what they're doing - who've handled budget emergencies before, who've led Washington through a recession, who know what resources we can access, and who understand how to use those resources to support working families.
But above all, we need leaders who will lead with transparency and fairness, and who will always fight for the most vulnerable among us.
That's why I'm in this race, John.
From serving as the Washington State House Majority Leader to leading the impeachment efforts against Donald Trump as a member of the House Intelligence Committee in Congress, I have always led with my values.
I'll bring those values to the job of Lieutenant Governor next year and fight for a fair budget that protects the vulnerable and strengthens our public schools. Together, we'll rebuild our state's economy and fight global climate change by creating thousands of good-paying jobs in clean, green energy. And we'll take on the wealthy special interests that have rigged the system in their favor by passing meaningful tax reform.
In other words: I will fight for progressive policies just as I have done all my life, in the legislature as Majority Leader, in the Congress fighting to hold President Trump accountable.
We're in rough waters, John, and I'm glad to have you on board.
