Riccelli a proven leader

We need proven leadership in our state representative. Marcus Riccelli has proven leadership. In working as senior policy adviser for Sen. Lisa Brown, and as Eastern Washington director for Sen. Maria Cantwell, Riccelli has worked with local business and community leaders over more than a decade, and has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to Spokane. Marcus is best fit to represent us in the 3rd Legislative District.

Not only does Marcus have the experience to hit the ground running, he understands our core community values and priorities. He believes in fully funding education from pre-kindergarten to college. He will work to level the playing field and tear down barriers limiting Spokane’s small business growth. He emphasizes the importance of preserving our social safety net so that the vulnerable are protected, kids have an equal opportunity, and seniors have a retirement they can count on.

Most importantly, Marcus plans to put Spokane folks back to work. Marcus wants to capitalize on Spokane’s strongest industries, such as the medical and biotechnology industries, as well as invest in emerging sectors such as aerospace manufacturing and technology.

Marcus Riccelli is a Gonzaga Bulldog and a proud product of Spokane. He will put Spokane’s best foot forward.
