Introductory statement from 32nd District State Rep. Cindy Ryu

Democratic 32nd District State Rep. Cindy Ryu will be unopposed on the Aug. 5 primary ballot.

She also will be unopposed on the Nov. 4 general-election ballot unless someone registers as a write-in candidate by July 18 and finishes second in the primary with at least 1 percent of the primary vote. As of Monday, no one had declared a write-in candidacy.

Ryu is seeking a third two-year term in the State House of Representatives.

Here is her introductory campaign statement:

32nd DISTRICT STATE REPRESENTATIVE Pos. 1

Cindy Ryu (Prefers Democratic Party)

A Washingtonian since 1969, I am honored to represent the people of Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace (west of I-5), south Edmonds, unincorporated Snohomish County, Woodway, Shoreline, and northwest Seattle. My priorities are to fully fund public education and protect consumers, working families, and the environment while ensuring safety of our communities. We must pass a construction budget and transportation package. Our state is growing, and we need to build classrooms while fixing aging bridges, highways and surface streets. Our economic recovery should not be bogged down by traffic gridlock. Endorsed by Democrats and the Sierra Club, and many others.
