Meet Derek

Derek understands the struggles middle-class families are going through because he’s lived through them. The son of two public school teachers, Derek was raised in Port Angeles during a time of high unemployment on the Olympic Peninsula. As the timber industry declined and local businesses closed, Derek watched as his friends’ parents lost their jobs and their ability to support their families.

My heart is heavy. Overruling #RoevsWade won't end abortion. It will only end safe and legal abortion in over half of the states in our country. I will never stop fighting against these unjustified attacks on reproductive freedom. https://www.cnn.com/politics/live-news/roe-wade-abortion-supreme-court-ruling/index.html

Great news! I'm proud to go to work every day to help folks in our community, stand up for reform, and get the government working for the people again. Thank you @seattletimes for the endorsement.

Happy Father’s Day to all of Washington's dads, caregivers, and father figures! And to all those who may be spending today without their loved one, I hope their memory brings you joy today.
