We are fortunate as a community to have Andy Billig as a candidate for 3rd District state representative. Over the past 18 years, Andy has developed an in-depth understanding of the challenges and opportunities in Spokane through broad-based community engagement – including serving on the Spokane Human Services Advisory Board and the YMCA board, coaching youth sports and helping organizing Bike to Work Week.

Andy has doorbelled over 5,000 homes and has heard the concerns of citizens all over the district. He has attended neighborhood events to connect with voters, including the Pride Festival, Earth Day and neighborhood council meetings. His campaign has been mobilized by the grass-roots support of over 150 volunteers who also believe strongly in the future of the 3rd District.

Andy Billig will represent the needs and goals of the 3rd District by promoting proactive, long-term solutions for education, jobs, health care and the environment. He is the voice I want to see in Olympia.
