Elizabeth Scott has announced her campaign for Washington State Senator, 39th Legislative District, in the Special Election to be held this year.
“My passion is to serve my neighbors and work to find solutions while staying within the boundaries set by our State and U.S. Constitutions,” said Scott. “It is an honor to already have the endorsements of Snohomish County Councilman Sam Low, Sedro-Woolley Councilman Chuck Owen, former Skagit Party Republican Chair Mike Newman, Snohomish County Republican Party State Committeeman Randy Hayden, Doc and Faith Mischel, and many more of our friends and neighbors.”
Elizabeth Scott has a solid track record of being a principled, accurate, courageous voice for her district. The top issues in her campaign are property and water rights, education, and fiscal responsibility. The so-called “Hirst fix” water bill recently passed in the Legislature explicitly ignored the plight of Skagit County, eliminating them from the provisions of the bill, and constituents around the district feel the increasing weight of government control, taxation, and fees.
Elizabeth Scott is running against the newly-appointed incumbent Keith Wagoner, who was appointed in January 2018 to fill the seat vacated by former Senator Kirk Pearson. Scott served as a State Representative for the 39th LD in Skagit, Snohomish, and northeast King Counties for four years, winning re-election with nearly 63% in 2014 and completing her second term in January 2017.
Elizabeth Scott has taught the English language to immigrants and international students for over ten years, and she lives in Monroe with her daughter. More information is available on elizabeth4state.com and the campaign kickoff will be held in Arlington on February 26 at Buzz Inn Steakhouse.
