Jeannie Darneille: State Senator, District 27
Rep. Darneille, a Democrat in the 27th Legislative District, will vacate her House seat at the end of 2012, and is running for the Senate in the 27th LD. She has served in the House for several consecutive terms and has received the Club's endorsement for the last several elections.
Rep. Darneille has not only worked tirelessly for human rights and services for those in need, but also has staunchly supported protecting the environment during her many years of service in the State House. With her legislative knowledge, experience, and good environmental record, she's the logical choice to fill the open Senate seat (to be vacated by Sen. Debbie Regala) in the 27th LD to continue her good work. She has the strong support of her District and County Democratic Party as well as from human rights, labor groups and Washington Conservation Voters.
