Healthcare advocate and Kitsap County native Emily Randall Announces for 26th District State Senate Seat
Emily Randall, a healthcare advocate and Kitsap County native, is running for the 26th District State Senate seat.
“I believe that more unites us than divides us and am frustrated by partisan politicians who lack the courage to do what’s right for our community. I’m running for State Senate because I know we have the resources and tools to address our most pressing issues – we just need to elect a leader with the conviction to put people first.” said Emily Randall.
Emily was born in Bremerton, raised in Port Orchard, and is the daughter of two union workers – her father, an Army vet, worked at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard for over 25 years and her mother has been a paraeducator at South Kitsap High School for nearly 20.
The first in her family to graduate from a four year college, Emily has dedicated her career to expanding access to affordable healthcare and education for women, kids, and LGBTQ folks across the country.
“As State Senator, I will stand strong for what matters to us — quality, affordable healthcare, ensuring every child has the same educational opportunities, and building an economy that works for everyone.”
Emily is committed to hearing from voters and residents in the 26th about their priorities and concerns. That’s why, in the upcoming months, she will travel across the district to meet with community members to hear directly from them.
“We have a unique district that spans from Bremerton to Gig Harbor, Manchester to the Key Peninsula. I am going to be meeting people up and down the district to ensure everyone’s voice is brought back to Olympia,” Randall said. Her first event is today, January 9th, at 6:30pm at the Fiesta Mexican Restaurant in Bremerton.
