Vote for Sylvia Hammond

I support Sylvia Hammond for the District 13 state House in Olympia. As a farmer and teacher, she understands agriculture, water rights and the importance of quality education.

Hammond listens to the concerns of those living in the 13th District - at a recent meet and greet she made time to visit with everyone who had concerns and encouraged constituents to contact her with other ideas/concerns. She travels throughout the district to hear from those she will represent.

When legislation about minimum wage was being considered in Olympia, I called Matt Manweller to express my opinion. He treated me in a condescending manner – indicated he was smarter than me and would not listen to my input in spite of my protest that I was his constituent.

Manweller criticizes the comprehensive report (which I encourage all constituents to read) about his pattern of inappropriate behavior and now wastes more taxpayer money with a lawsuit against CWU – he already benefited from paid leave while he was investigated for sexual misconduct.

Vote for Sylvia Hammond, a candidate who has experience, intelligence and integrity - and who listens.
