*For three decades, Washington Conservation Action has worked to ensure our endorsement is a clear sign to voters that any candidate who has earned this designation will fight to ensure all people in Washington state have a healthy place to live, a strong economy, and a protected environment. We have a rigorous vetting process and don’t decide to endorse lightly, but in a handful of races there are two candidates who we feel have earned our support. In these races, both have shown they will work to live up to the values of Washington Conservation Action, our members, and our values. Voters would be served well by both of these candidates in these races.
