State Rep. Dave Paul had productive first year in 10th LD

State Rep. Dave Paul is the kind of representative every voter looks for. He knows and cares about the people in his northern Washington district. From young to old and in between, his constituents benefit from his passions that are also the cornerstones of our community: health care, public education affordable higher education, jobs and the issues that span generations, such as social justice, prosperity and fair treatment under the law.

Since Paul’s election last November, he has collaborated with other legislators to introduce and quickly pass legislation to create laws that improve our lives. This is what he and his colleagues accomplished for the people of the 10th Legislative District in 2019: more affordable health care, expanded rural broadband, removing high-stakes testing from graduation requirements, improved student safety, and more.

Dave has been hard at work meeting with local groups and elected officials to prepare for the 2020 legislative session. He has exciting plans for solid legislation to carry us into the future. He is working to address the environment, college affordability, transportation and infrastructure.

We know from his record of hard work and unflagging enthusiasm that Dave will continue his pursuit of needed legislation, and commitment to the people in your family and ours. Follow Dave’s legislative vigor, goals and accomplishments through his newsletters.
