Ingrid Anderson is one of our own and is running for State Senator to represent the 5th LD. Growing up in the Snoqualmie Valley, Ingrid Anderson is raising her family in the community and valley she loves.
Anderson has been serving our community for years as a nurse. Beginning in the emergency room, Anderson has gravitated toward psychiatric nursing and is close to finishing her master’s degree to become a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner.
In 2019, Anderson played an important role in the passage of a bill, which would help protect healthcare workers and improve patient care. Unfortunately, she did not find our incumbent Senator supportive. When she realized the incumbent had a pattern of not supporting working families and environmental issues, she decided to run against him.
As a nurse, Anderson will bring a unique and much-needed perspective to our State Senate. Her inside knowledge of the healthcare system will be very valuable, especially during a pandemic. Mental health expertise is lacking in Olympia, and Anderson’s knowledge will be an extremely valuable addition.
Anderson’s healthcare experience is just frosting on the cake. She is the one I trust to make common sense, practical decisions about public education, the environment, working families, and our horribly regressive tax system.
I’m not alone. Ingrid Anderson has been endorsed by Governor Jay Inslee, the Sierra Club, the Environmental and Climate Caucus, Washington State Nurses Association, American Federation of Teachers, Bellevue Firefighters, National Alliance on Mental Illness, Washington State Conservation Voters, and too many more to list.
For a safer community, please cast your vote for Ingrid Anderson.
Roger Ledbetter, Snoqualmie
