Part of fighting extreme lawmakers and the Trump administration starts right here at home in Washington state — that’s why I’m excited to tell you about #MankaDhingra.
Our state senate is currently controlled by the Republican Party — but electing #MankaDhingra for state senate in the 45th legislative district could change all that. The stakes could not be higher. This election will determine who controls the majority in the Washington State Senate, and working locally here in Washington is one of the most effective ways of fighting back against President Trump and for our progressive values.
I’d love to tell you a little more about why I’m proud to support Manka:
She’s a Senior Deputy King County Prosecutor, award winning PTSA mom, anti-domestic violence advocate and community leader. Manka has spent her career fighting to protect the rights of others.
After beginning her career prosecuting sexually violent predators and domestic violence cases, Manka developed unique expertise in criminal justice reforms that address the needs of the mentally ill, veterans, and others for whom traditional jail — and the high costs of prosecution and incarceration — were neither reducing repeated criminal behavior nor helping restore lives.
Remember — fighting President Trump’s agenda starts at home, and I can think of no better person than Manka Dhingra to help us do that here in Washington state.
