Thanks to the hard work, contributions and tireless help from volunteers, supporters and community leaders from across the district, election night was a resounding success. I am grateful for all the support, advice and help I received from everyone and proud of what we accomplished on this campaign together.
It’s an honor to be given the opportunity to represent the residents of Washington’s 1st Congressional district.
For me, this campaign has always been about standing up for the middle class. Too many working families in the 1st District are struggling, the same way my family did when I was growing up. They deserve someone who will go to Congress and fight for them.
That’s what I intend to do.
We face many challenges and I believe for us to be successful, we need to work together.
As I travelled around the district, I heard from voters that they
want a representative to break the gridlock and deliver results, not rhetoric. Someone who will set aside the hyper-partisanship in Congress and who’s willing to work across the aisle to get the job done.
They also want to be listened to. Every day, I met people with great ideas and solutions on how to get our economy back on track. This energy and engagement must not end with this election.
So while the campaign is over, I still need your help. I ask that you continue to participate. Send me your ideas, feedback and let’s keep the discussion going. For me, the key to working together means taking the time to listen to and learn from each other.
We have a lot to do for the next two years, and I am excited about what we will able to accomplish as we work to build a foundation for economic growth and make sure everyone has access to opportunity.
