Statement: We cannot elect the same people from the same political parties and expect a different result. Ann is an independent candidate. As a rural doctor and businesswoman, Ann knows our health care system and has practical ideas to rein in drug costs and increase access to affordable care.
A capital budget supports school construction, affordable housing projects, and economic development in every community. In 2017, lawmakers failed to pass a capital budget. Ann has never missed a payroll, and our government shouldn't either. We can do better. Endorsed by Washington Women’s Political Caucus and Washington Academy of Family Physicians.
