Incumbent Democratic 46th District State Rep. Jessyn Farrell faces Republican challenger Branden Curtis on the Aug. 3 primary ballot. As the only candidates, the two are certain to qualify for the Nov. 4 general-election ballot.

Farrell is seeking a second two-year term in the State House of Representatives.

The 46th Legislative District includes Lake Forest Park, Kenmore and northeast Seattle.

Here are introductory statements from the two candidates in the order their names will appear on the primary ballot:

46th District State Representative, Pos. 2

Jessyn Farrell (Prefers Democratic Party)

Rep. Jessyn Farrell serves as vice chair of the Transportation Committee and sits on the Local Government and Environment Committees. Jessyn is an attorney with a focus on mediation, and her professional experience includes working as the executive director of Transportation Choices Coalition. Her biggest accomplishment in that role – securing billions in transit funding by bringing together transit and road – remains a top priority in Olympia. As a mother of two children (with a third on the way), Jessyn is passionate about Washington’s education system and advocates strongly for fully funding our schools, from early learning through higher education.

Branden Curtis (Prefers Republican Party)

My name is Branden Curtis, and I would be honored to serve and represent you in the 46th District. Being a student at Shoreline Community College has opened my eyes to the many struggles faced by students with the cost of education. I am looking to become something more than just a student, I want to become a leader that listens to his constituency and brings sound and sensible solutions to Olympia. I believe in small and efficient government, lowering the cost of education, strong infrastructure, strengthening our free market system, and environmental responsibility. Thank you.
