10th LD, House, Pos. 1: Woodard will draw from experience

Want a legislative candidate with years of experience in field that’s under-represented in our Legislature? Then Suzanne Woodard is your candidate for 10th LD representative.

In this time of concern for how Olympia will respond to COVID-19’s economic and public health challenges, and where understanding of the science behind legislation is essential, Suzanne’s 30-plus years as a nurse is invaluable. We need her experience in Olympia.

Suzanne, a union member, has actively participated in the legislative process, understands it well, and has formed strong partnerships in Olympia. She has compassion for families and for those issues that affect our health, our ability to have adequate insurance and our ability to get needed health care in rural areas. She would be a voice for affordable health care for all. Homelessness, mental health and drug addition problems would benefit from Suzanne’s experience as well.

As a mother whose children attended public schools, Suzanne understands how our education system works. She knows that school funding must be fair, and that teachers and students must have the tools needed to be successful during the challenging years ahead. Educational opportunity from preschool through career training is another priority for Suzanne.

I met Suzanne just before COVID-19 changed meetings from in person to online. I appreciate not only her willingness to learn when she needs to learn, but also her genuine concern for people. She brings not only considerable experience, but intelligence and a passion for serving others.
