Today was a first for me: I visited the Auditor’s Office and filed to run for Prosecutor. My stated party preference on the ballot is Non-Partisan, because that’s what a Prosecutor should be.
I won’t dramatize the moment – it was just filing some paperwork. But I did pause to appreciate how far we’ve come in this campaign already, and all the offers from so many of you to endorse, donate, and volunteer. I’m grateful for all of it!
And while it’s easy to take it for granted, we should celebrate what Filing Week represents. In this country we don’t need special clearance, a party’s stamp of approval, or the government’s permission to run for office.
All of us have the opportunity to put our names forward and offer a better vision. That’s what I’m doing.
I’m proud of our non-partisan campaign, and of the support we’re getting from Democrats, Republicans, and independents. I’m thankful for my endorsers (we have some really great endorsements!) who aren’t afraid to say that things aren’t well at the Prosecutor’s Office today, that we need stronger leadership there ASAP.
For those of you who are supporting me, thank you. And to everyone else, I hope to earn your vote too – you are welcome in our coalition that wants better for the taxpayers and voters of Pierce County.
P.S. Feel free to drop me a line at [email protected]. I’d love to hear your questions, concerns, and ideas.
