Brothers and sisters, with primary election ballots hitting mailboxes statewide I write to remind you that representatives from WSCFF local affiliates convened in Vancouver in June and voted to endorse the following federal and statewide candidates. Before the 77th Annual WSCFF Convention, your legislative team and District Representatives thoroughly vetted these candidates. They were selected because their vision and values are in sync with the priorities advanced by the WSCFF and the IAFF.
Many locals have worked hard to advance specific referendums on local ballots, and have endorsed candidates in local elections. We urge you to consult with your local leadership about elections in your community.
Remember that our mission is to provide our membership with the best possible working conditions and the safest possible working environment, along with fair compensation and benefits. Political action is the most potent tool we have to achieve our goals.
This is an important primary election. Voters will choose finalists for one U.S. Senate seat, all 10 House seats and all nine statewide offices. Please vote in the upcoming election and encourage your friends and colleagues to do so. Voters have until August 2 to complete and return their ballots by mail, drop box, or in person.
