Have Input in Filling a State Representative Position–Act Now

This Saturday there will be a new Senator chosen and possibly a new Representative for the House.

Sharon Hanek is the top choice chosen by the 31st District for the House position.  Now the King and Pierce County Councils must make the final decision.   Sharon has been a long time researcher of education issues and has a deep understanding of the problems facing many parents in Washington State.

Please help by calling the King County and Pierce County Council members and ask them to choose Sharon Hanek.  It is especially important for citizens of King and Pierce County to call their Council Member and make this request.

The selection will be this Saturday January 7th at 10:00.  The meeting is open to the public.   The first part of the meeting will be to select the next Senator.  It is hopeful that the #1 choice for the Senate seat, a current House member, will be chosen which then leaves a vacancy for Sharon Hanek to move into.   We hope the County Councils do honor the will of the 31st District, ask them to send both #1 choices of Senate and House to Olympia!
