Re-elect Tana Senn

Dear Neighbor, 

I am running for re-election in order to bring the voice of families to Olympia. 

This starts with education. Our schools in the 41st are some of the best in the country. However, we need to continue to be vigilant as our state moves forward with new education proposals. We can’t shortchange schools in our district as we ensure students across the state have quality education as well. 

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 and needed improvements. I was thrilled to vote for the transportation package last year and believe that continuing infrastructure investments are critical. We let our transportation system linger without new investments for far too long. I will continue to champion new investments so people in our district don’t have to choose between being stuck in traffic and spending time with their families.

I am proud to be the lead sponsor of the Equal Pay Opportunity Act. We must ensure that men and women are paid equally for the same work. This legislation focuses on eliminating pay secrecy policies, preventing retaliation and addressing less favorable job opportunities. I am honored to speak often on this topic and raise awareness of the importance of treating and paying employees—of all walks of like—fairly.

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

    Don't Be Fooled by Misleading Ads

    I was surprised to be asked recently who I support for State Senate in our 41st Legislative District. I have been very clear: I endorse Lisa Wellman The confusion arose over misleading advertisements recently released by Wellman’s opponent, Steve Litzow. He uses both my name and my photo in numerous ads, implying that I have endorsed him. As I made clear to the election watchdogs, the PDC,* I have not endorsed Steve Litzow. In fact, as reported in PubliCola, I publicly called for him to stop using my name and photo in any and all of his materials. One of his advertisements claims we worked together on equal pay legislation. I understand that he may not wish to run on his own record, but he may not run on mine!

    Seattle Times Endorses Senn

    Today, the Seattle Times endorsed me for re-election: "Tana Senn wants to return to the state House of Representatives to finish the work she has started on pay equity, transportation, education and gun violence," it begins. "This Mercer Island Democrat says she looks at every issue through the lens of how it would impact children and families." The recommendation continues, "Senn understand the nuances of the state's education budget challenges and...has some good ideas about education that would likely lead to better outcomes for kids."
