Re-elect Tana Senn

Dear Neighbor, 

I am running for re-election to continue my work to make life easier for busy families. 

This starts with education. Our schools in the 41st are some of the best in the country. Even as the state has now met its McCleary school funding obligation, we must recognize that we still do not fully fund school counselors, school nurses, special education, 7-period days and more. We must ensure students across the state have a quality education that reflects today's realities. 

This year, the legislature passed my bill, the "Equal Pay Opportunity Act," marking the first update to the state's equal pay law in 75 years.  I have been honored to speak often on the topic of equal pay and women's rights and look forward to continuing to do so.

With 405, I-90, and 167 traversing our district, some of the state’s biggest transportation corridors are in the 41st. They are also some of the areas of greatest congestion. As we make transportation improvements and extend Sound Transit, I will continue to help oversee these new investments and advocate for efficiencies to ensure people in our district don’t have to choose between being stuck in traffic and spending time with their families.

Whether it’s championing education, making sure our economy treats everyone fairly, or improving our transportation system, I am excited to continue to work with all of you to make sure the Eastside is one of the best places to live.

    Housing Groups, Master Builders, Labor Support Senn

    My dad was a developer. When I was a kid, I would accompany him to the homes he was building. To this day, the smell of sawdust reminds me of my childhood.  Times have changed and sawdust is no longer a common smell on building sites. But my interest in housing issues remains. As a legislator, I was honored to serve for four years on the State Building Code Council, helping ensure the health, safety and energy efficiency of our built environment. This year, we finally passed legislation to help strengthen and streamline the Building Code Council after years of stakeholder negotiations and collaboration. Looking toward next legislative session, I anticipate ongoing robust discussions on my bill to reform condo liability laws to help stimulate affordable condominium development. I am thrilled to have the endorsements from groups working in this area including:  Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO, Seattle King County Realtors Master Builders Association of King & Snohomish Counties Washington Housing Alliance Action Fund Washington Interior Systems Local Union No. 41 Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters Central Puget Sound Carpenters Local 30 Laborers Local Union 242 Teamsters Local Union 117

    Faith in Humanity

    This past weekend, I joined 10,000 other parents, children, grandparents, strangers and new friends in a protest at the Federal Detention Center in Seatac. Families belong together and our country's actions in ripping immigrant and asylum-seeking families apart is not ok! Last week, I marched with hundreds of community members and faith leaders who also believe that religion should never be used to justify inhumane actions. You cannot justify the unjust with an errant quote from the Bible.  The coming together of people of faith, of no faith or simply with faith in humanity is a powerful tool and something we need to do until every immigrant youth is reunited with their parents. Make no mistake about it: our country continues to inflict trauma along our borders.As a state, we spend countless hours, research dollars and funding to prevent childhood trauma, nurture foster youth, and keep families intact. We understand the importance of attachment for children, the brain science of trauma and how hard it is to overcome these things well into adulthood.  Yet we continue to reject science…and pursuit of some political gain. This is a long-term problem of our own making and will prove to be a dark time for our country. This is further proof that elections matter. I urge you to stay informed, volunteer, vote and make your voice heard.  In solidarity,Tana
