“LET’S MOVE BEYOND DIVISIVE POLITICS AND PUT PEOPLE FIRST”
MEET EMILY RANDALL
I’m excited to announce my campaign for State Senate in the 26th district.
Born and raised here on the Kitsap Peninsula, I know what makes our community special - and I understand the unique challenges we face.
I know that there is more that unites us than divides us and I am frustrated by partisan politicians in Olympia without the courage to do what’s right for you and me, our families and our neighbors.
I’m running to put the people of the 26th district first.
To ensure we are investing in our local economy so that hard-working folks can earn a good living, that we have high quality education to prepare our students for the careers needed most by businesses in our community, and that we all have access to affordable healthcare.
My top priority is hearing directly from you and your neighbors, right here in our district. I want to know what you love about our community and how you think we could do better, your struggles and your hopes. In the coming weeks and months I will be visiting every area of the 26th - from Lakebay to Olalla, Fox Island to Navy Yard City, Purdy to Retsil.
I want to hear from you!

Spent a full day with Kitsap County Sheriff's Office at their defensive tactics and scenario based training, followed by a ride-along with Deputy Lechner. I learned a lot about how our deputies and officers prep and practice, navigate changing legal landscape, and strive to keep our communities safe. Each person brings their own unique experience and perspective, but the same heart for service.Grateful for this opportunity to learn 💙 ... See MoreSee Less
Washington is not only the best place to live — it’s the best place to learn.As Chair of Higher Education & Workforce Development, it’s not my job to send every high school grad to college — it’s my job to make sure that everyone has options, and whatever path they choose includes the supports they need.As a 1st generation college graduate who had to leave Washington to afford my education, I’m so honored to work alongside students like Marco, faculty and staff from WEA & AFT Washington, AFL-CIO & labor leaders from across the state, colleges & apprenticeship programs, and my colleagues in the legislature (especially House Chair Vandana Slatter 💜) to increase financial aid, expand apprenticeship pathways, and to ensure our system is putting students first, so that students can find their path right here in Washington.Yesterday, we celebrated the incredible wins for higher education & career pathways from this legislative session at University of Washington Tacoma 🙌🏽 Big congratulations to Marco — whose welding apprenticeship through the Ironworkers & Bates Technical College is going to carry him to future degrees and his own business.So proud to be on this team. ...

📣Endorsement alert📣Grateful to have the support of National Women's Political Caucus of Washington (NWPC-WA)!!!!At a time when women's bodies are under attack nationwide, when women have stepped out of the labor market in record numbers because the pandemic shifted our caregiving responsibilities, when women make up the majority of college students at most institutions but continue to make less than men on average -- electing women leaders is more important than ever.National Women's Political Caucus invests women leaders -- in trainings (like the one I took in 2017!), in networking opportunities, in building community.I'm proud to work side by side with NWPC-WA, and so many women who believe that we can make a difference together! ...

Happy #InternationalMidwivesDay to the birth workers and baby catchers who help grow families 💙I’ve been so honored to work alongside midwives to make Washington a healthier, safer place to give birth and raise families — from addressing maternal mortality rates, extending postpartum Medicaid from 60 days to a full year, to ensuring midwives have the authority to prescribe postpartum contraception along with antibiotics and other medication commonly needed by their patients.So grateful to work with compassionate, patient-centric, advocates. Thank a midwife you know today! 💙 ... See MoreSee Less
Abortion is healthcare and we will not stop fighting for reproductive justice — in Washington and across the country. Today I’m standing with neighbors at the corner of Point Fosdick & Olympic Drive in Gig Harbor today — join me! ... See MoreSee Less
We have been preparing for this moment here in WA — when Roe & Casey would fall because of a Supreme Court packed with right wing appointees. I’ve been a proud champion of #abortion access and #reproductivejustice with this decision looming. But my heart breaks for the people across the country who are losing an essential freedom — to grow families their way, on their terms. Abortion is healthcare, and the fight for reproductive justice for all people will continue. ... See MoreSee Less
