Arrow-right Camera

McLaughlin the clear choice

Nancy McLaughlin is the best choice for state senator in the 3rd Legislative District. She has always been a strong advocate for public education, while discerning the difference between investing money in performance-based solutions vs. simply throwing money away indiscriminately.

She and her husband have a real small-business background, and a true passion to help our small-business community. This is in comparison to her opponent, who received a 10 percent score from the National Federation of Independent Businesses. Even Sen. Lisa Brown received a score of 30 percent from this group. So if we don’t elect Nancy for this seat, it will be a significant step backward for our economy.

She understands the needs of Spokane from her time on Spokane City Council, and understands the larger state perspective from her service as the president of the Washington Association of Cities.

Nancy McLaughlin is the clear choice for the state Senate.
