McNaughton perfect to represent 44th

It is time! It has been 22 years since a woman has represented the 44th Legislative District in Snohomish County. Mary McNaughton is a mother of five, an Army veteran, a former small business owner, and is currently an oncology and surgical nurse. Her background and experience make her exceptionally competent to represent the variety of needs represented by the 44th District, including women, small business owners, the unemployed, military veterans, parents of school-aged children, and military veterans.

In this day when women are being attacked on all fronts, we need a strong advocate to stand up for women’s rights. McNaughton champions women’s issues and needs, a commitment borne out of her own personal experiences.

She is also dedicated to helping the unemployed find work, something I can personally attest to.

If you are concerned about proper funding for your child’s education, currently unemployed, in need of affordable health care, angry about Republican attacks on women, or a small business owner or military veteran, be assured that McNaughton will fight tooth and nail to make sure your needs are represented in Olympia. McNaughton’s compassionate spirit, something her patients can attest to, and her strong leadership qualities make her the right woman at the right time to fight for the needs of the 44th District.
