Nicole Macri has been an effective leader on affordable housing, homelessness, human services, and mental health for many years. She is running to expand affordable housing options, create a sustainable transportation system, fully fund our schools, close the gender pay gap, and ensure LGBTQ people are free from discrimination. Macri - an out lesbian - would be the first woman elected to the state House in the 43rd in more than 20 years.
Her opponent, Dan Shih, is also progressive and a leader in the LGBTQ community. He received a dual endorsement along with Macri from NARAL Pro-Choice Washington. However, Macri's experience and numerous endorsements from our Progressive Voters Guide partners make her the best choice in this race.
