Letter to the Editor: Maralyn Chase is a strong voice for the 32nd District

To the Editor:

I interned for Senator Maralyn Chase during the 2015 legislative session and am proud to call her a mentor and friend. Senator Chase is committed to ensuring that everyone gets a fair shake. She’s a Democrat of the Great Society school; mindful of the worker and the tradesman, not only limousine liberals. This and her foresight and command of issues strongly qualify her as Chair of the Trade and Economic Development Committee. Senator Chase knows that a rising tide lifts all boats. She knows that ensuring a well-educated, adaptable workforce is the role of our public schools alone, and she’s vigilant to the challenges that outsourcing and automation present to that workforce in the 21st Century. In this, she serves all Washingtonians, from aerospace workers in Snohomish County to farm workers in Yakima County. She’s a champion for a Washington in which all of us can achieve our potential, not just those born to wealth.

Senator Chase is a steadfast opponent of corporate welfare. Massive tax breaks for Amazon or Boeing or Microsoft don’t fund education and don’t fund services for the sick, poor, and elderly. She’s fiscally responsible. Senator Chase opened my eyes to the fact that Washington has the most regressive tax structure in the country. We pride ourselves on being a progressive trailblazer in a country dominated by regressive policies, but when it comes time to put our money where our mouth is we fall short. Senator Chase isn’t afraid to remind us that we must do better, and she will lead the charge against policies that mortgage the fiscal health of our state for the false friendship of corporate interests.

Senator Chase is a strong voice for the people of the 32nd District and for the people of Washington. Retain her.
