If you're looking for a candidate to support in the August 17 primary election, Joe Fitzgibbon should be one of your top priorities. With three years' worth of legislative sessions under his belt as an aide to Rep. Sharon Nelson, he stands out from the pack running to fill her open seat in the 34th legislative district (West Seattle, Vashon, Burien, Tukwila). We look forward to working with Joe in Olympia not just because he' s the only candidate with Olympia experience, but because he so clearly cares about the issues that are most important to us as bicyclists. And he's not just endorsed by Cascade -- you can see Joe's healthy list of supporters in his television ad or on his website.
Cascade has been active full-time for two legislative sessions in Olympia. The 2010 election allows us to recognize some of our partners in the state legislature who are working create a more bicycle-friendly Washington, and some upstart candidates who are even out campaigning on their bikes. Read below for a full list of endorsed candidates in the upcoming primary.
