Working for citizens


This past week, I had the honor of being introduced to Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and was so impressed to see and hear firsthand how McMorris Rodgers is fighting for the citizens of Eastern Washington. It was truly gratifying to hear how she is working across the aisle to fight for bills that will directly affect us, like her hydropower bill that passed through the House unanimously and was signed by the president.

As a young woman, I admire McMorris Rodgers’ positive and pragmatic leadership. Her strong voice and willpower radiate throughout Congress and Eastern Washington as she continues to fight for and represent us.

McMorris Rodgers is not only a leader we can be proud of, but also a leader we deserve in a time when there is so much negativity and discouragement with our federal government. She is making a positive difference and is a great asset to the Northwest. There is no doubt that I’ll be voting for McMorris Rodgers to keep her working for us, and so should you.
