We are excited to announce our endorsements for Washington’s primary election. When healthcare workers become healthcare voters, we can elect healthcare champions. Essential workers like us don’t have the same resources as wealthy corporations, but when we join together to support candidates who value working people, we are a force. Our vote is our voice. Vote by Aug. 3!
- King County Executive: As King County Executive, Dow Constantine has stood strong with healthcare workers at the bargaining table and throughout COVID, holding employers accountable to provide quality care and good jobs in our community. We’re proud to endorse him.
- King County Proposition 1: Renewing the Best Starts for Kids levy will maintain and expand effective programs that put our children and youth on a path toward lifelong success. Proposition 1 gets our endorsement.
- Hospital District 1, Commissioner Position 2: Our MLK Labor sibling Dustin Lambro has extensive community leadership experience and is a staunch workers’ rights advocate. As Hospital District Commissioner, he will make sure that the community has a voice in the governance of its hospital system.
- Hospital District 1, Commissioner Position 4: Monique Taylor-Swan is a community leader and board member of SEIU 775.
