“Why would a Republican County Commissioner from the east side of the state support a Democratic candidate for State Senate? . . . I’ve served with Helen on statewide boards and committees and have witnessed her work across the aisle to achieve results that benefit everybody. . . She has my support and deserves yours.”

Michael Largent, Whitman County Commissioner, August 20, 2019

 

Helen Price Johnson Announces Run for State Senate

Clinton, Washington
August 1, 2019

Helen Price Johnson has announced that she is running for the Washington State Senate in the 10th Legislative District.  Helen, a third-term Democratic Island County Commissioner, is a former South Whidbey School Board member and a life-long resident of Whidbey Island. She and her family have owned and operated a small business on Whidbey Island for many years.

“State government needs to rethink its one-size-fits-all legislation regarding taxes, housing and small business. Our rural communities need common sense solutions that create family wage jobs and economic opportunities while protecting the environment and our quality of life.

“Special interests lobby and get tax breaks and regulatory loopholes for large corporations, making small businesses carry an unfair burden. Main Street needs a stronger voice in Olympia.  Our small businesses are the engine for jobs and economic growth for our towns and form the backbone of resilience for our communities.”

Helen is the past president of the Washington State Association of Counties. She works with Republican and Democratic commissioners from across the state to address local government concerns.  She intends to take her community-focused leadership and bipartisan experience to Olympia in 2020.

“Our communities need a Senator in Olympia who will represent all of us in a bipartisan manner, with proven leadership based on years of public service.”
