Maralyn Chase Campaign - News Release

Last night was an excellent Campaign Announcement Event at Jersey's Fine Food and Spirits.
Great turnout, great enthusiasm.

Here's the press release from the campaign and some photos of last night's event.

For Immediate Release:
Representative Maralyn Chase Announces Bid for State Senate
Vows to Continue As Progressive Force in Olympia

Shoreline, Wash. (April 26, 2010)
 Standing in front of a packed room Monday afternoon, 
State Representative Maralyn Chase (D-Edmonds) announced 
her campaign for the State Senate. 
“I want to continue to be the voice of the 32nd District in Olympia,” 
said Representative Chase.

In her announcement, she said that the main pillars of her candidacy 
were attracting working class jobs, protecting the environment, 
and to convey the values of “fairness, justice and compassion” 
in the legislative process.

Representative Chase explained that the goals of supporting local businesses 
and creating livingwage jobs do not conflict with protection of the environment. 
“I think she is what the district needs, and I’m sure she’ll get support 
from labor the environmental community,” said Adrienne Fraley-Monillas, 
Edmonds City Councilmember.

“We need true progressive leadership in the Senate. If we are going to 
move this state forward, Maralyn is the perfect person to elect,” 
said Rep. Marko Liias (D-Mukilteo).

Inclement weather prompted a change of venue to Jersey’s Fine Food and Spirits
restaurant, where about 50 supporters applauded Rep. Chase’s announcement, 
“I am running for the Senate!”

Representative Chase has represented the 32nd Legislative District since 2001. 
She received the 2004 WSE/AFSCME George Masten Courage Award, and 
was named the 2007 Legislator of the Year by the Washington State Federation 
of Democratic Women. She has a MA in Political Science from the 
University of Washington and owns 
a small contracting company.
