10th LD, Senate: Helen Price Johnson can bring sides together

Helen Price Johnson is the clear choice for your vote for State Senate in the 10th​ Legislative District. As a lifelong resident of the district, Helen truly and personally understands what makes this place we call home so special. Also, she knows how to solve the challenges we will face in this ever changing world. Helen will make our future better.

As three-term Island County Commissioner serving both in the majority and the minority parties, Helen is kind and respectful. She truly listens, which is a rare quality in today’s times. She established a well-deserved reputation for working across the aisle and for treating her fellow commissioners and her constituents with respect and interest in their points of view.

I have known Helen for many years. She is always knowledgeable about the issues before her, Helen has built her career on seeking solutions that will best support the working families and rural communities she represents.

We already have too much angry noise permeating national and state politics. Let’s elect a real leader who has the experience to bring people together to find opportunities to create more workforce housing, address the health care and mental health crises laid bare by the COVID-19 pandemic, and resolve the budget crisis facing our local and state governments.

Vote for Helen Price Johnson for State Senate. She is the clear choice.
