Energy of a fighter

Sen. Chris Marr brings unwavering energy to the policy realm, particularly around the importance of health care for children and quality education. He has fought for K-12 and higher-education funding. He has been a strong champion in the Senate for the children of this state. Sen. Marr is the right choice for children.

Sen. Marr has been a resident of Spokane for over 25 years. As a state senator, a family man with two children, a businessman and a community leader, he knows his city and county as few others. He has a long history of civic involvement including leadership on issues that make Spokane a better place for families, such as downtown revitalization. Sen. Marr is the right choice for Spokane.

Marr is a proven leader. His ability to gain bipartisan support in his first bid for elective office in 2006 illustrates his collaborative style. Sen. Marr is the right choice for Washington state.

To ensure that our children have the best opportunities to succeed, we need a strong and proven advocate to represent their interests in the Legislature. Sen. Chris Marr is the right choice.
