Preliminary Primary Election Results

Posted By: Alex Robertson Advocacy , Government ,

As of writing this, primary election day has passed. While we have yet to get the certified results, which will be done on August 16, lets take a look at the votes just after election day. We will be going through the "Friends of RHAWA" to see how each is doing so far in the polls. Even if candidates are not leading in the primary, as long as they are top two, there will be another opportunity in the general. In many of the races there are multiple people of the same party running against each other.  

Some of these candidates have been fighting for us on the hill already and some are looking to secure a seat for the first time. As we have highlighted before, this year is a huge opportunity to secure seats for housing friendly, moderate lawmakers. Housing providers have been facing an onslaught of additional regulations and restrictions. Helping candidates that support us is key to not only stopping that onslaught but also being able to fight back and push for a better environment for housing providers in Washington State. 

Our ability to support candidates and get candidates that support you as a housing provider depends on the donations of our members. Please donate to the RHAPAC so that we can continue to get candidates in office that will fight for us during the Legislative Session. You can donate to the PAC here: RHAwa.org/products/donations. 

If you have a candidate you would like RHAWA to consider endorsing in the general, would like to get more involved with our PAC activity, or would like to host a fundraiser please reach out to us at dbannon@RHAwa.org or arobertson@RHAwa.org. We are always on the lookout for members eager to get involved and will provide all the support you need to make a difference.
