Affordability issues are crushing our region and our future. Working families are struggling to pay for quality childcare and access a decent public education. And we must act now to protect our beautiful landscape from the devastating effects of climate change,” Berry said. “As a working mom, nonprofit leader, and someone who has been a champion for women in leadership my entire career, I understand the impact these issues are having on people in our community. I am a proven progressive leader who knows how to get things done. That’s why I am running for State House.”
Berry, 36, is the first person to announce her candidacy after State Rep. Gael Tarleton, D-Seattle, announced last month she is running for Secretary of State.
Gael is the person we need right now to protect our election security. Her leadership in this state and region has been immense. I am so grateful to know her and work with her over the years,” Berry said.
Berry has already raised an impressive $45,000 haul before today’s official launch.
As the Executive Director of the Washington State Association for Justice, Liz Berry has stood shoulder to shoulder with our labor brothers and sisters fighting to protect working families in Olympia, and she knows how to get things done. I enthusiastically endorse Liz for State House,” said Seattle City Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda.
Berry has been endorsed by Seattle City Councilmembers Lorena Gonzalez, Debora Juarez, Teresa Mosqueda, State Rep. Nicole Macri and Seattle School Board President Zachary DeWolf. Her complete endorsement list is here: http://www.lizberry.com/endorsements/
