My name is Sharon Wylie, and I’m running for re-election as your State Representative from the 49th Legislative District in Vancouver.
Since my appointment to this seat in 2011, we’ve made progress on a lot of important issues such as sex education, campaign finance reform, transportation, domestic abuse & sexual violence, but many issues still need attention. I represent many people who do not agree with each other or with me on these important topics, but when we treat each other with respect, great progress can be made.
This is an unprecedented time for all of us. As an elected leader at the state level I try to make the state operations that you deal with responsive and effective.
But long-term, our state is well positioned to recover. We have invested in an economy that is strong in technology, innovation, bio tech and medicine, trade and food production. We have cheap energy and clean water and air. We have an opportunity to think deeply about what is important, and I look forward to hearing from those I represent.
I believe that public service is an honor and a privilege, and I will continue to work hard and to be open to ideas to make our state better.
