Eric Choiniere: State Representative #1, District 28
Eric Choiniere, a Democrat, is seeking this open seat in the 28th LD. He has most recently been serving on the City Council of University Place where he has worked to balance the budget while funding priorities like local law enforcement. He also has supported parks and recreation for the city. As a veteran himself, he wants veterans to get all the services they need. Jobs, infrastructure, and education are his top priorities for his district and the state, yet he keenly understands we must take the necessary steps to curb global warming.
Choiniere wants to see more public transportation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and traffic congestion. He believes we should build out our highways and freeways with HOV lanes rather than build new roads such as the "cross-base highway" which will not only enable further suburban sprawl, but also damage a large pristine natural habitat on Joint Base Lewis McCord.
