Dellwo a collaborator

When Dennis Dellwo was representing us 16 years ago, he worked across the aisle. Dennis led the charge on health care reform for Washington, and brought together all interested parties, such as insurance companies, the Washington State Nurses Association, medical associations, citizen groups and other organizations.

They worked with Dennis to find common ground and cost-effective health care solutions. He worked side by side with Republican representatives to pass comprehensive health care coverage reform.

We need someone like Dennis who understands how to work with all of the representatives in Olympia. We need someone who can put party ideology aside and come together for fair solutions. We need Dellwo, who is known to work across the aisle. We know Dellwo. He is a sure bet!
