Woodard will be advocate for health in 44th LD

Now is the time to elect people like us to represent our needs in Olympia.

Suzanne Woodard is that kind of leader. A neonatal nurse for three decades in the north Puget Sound, and now a specialized newborn services educator, Suzanne understands how critical well-trained health care workers are, especially in rural areas like ours. A union leader, and the daughter of union workers, she knows the value of labor and how important it is to create and sustain well-paying jobs. A long-time advocate for health and labor, she knows all too well how some legislators put the needs of corporations above the priorities of our families. Suzanne will put people first!

As our representative, Suzanne Woodard will be an unyielding advocate for our health, delivering needed reforms and investments that will ensure no one has to choose between a prescription or a bill. She will build on the work already in progress to assist those with mental and behavioral health issues, and tackle the real problem of under-housing across our communities. Suzanne will stand up for our rural schools, ensuring they are allocated the resources needed for our children’s success, while also championing the need for affordable childcare. For our health, and the health of our local economy, she will develop and enact legislation that will ensure the sustainability of our environment and maintain our quality of life that is so dependent on fishing, recreation, and tourism.

Now is the time for a healthy change. Now is the time to elect Suzanne Woodard as our next State Representative for the 10th Legislative District.
