Welcome to the Washington 17th Legislative Democrats where we believe in the strength and diversity of our district.
Our commitment extends beyond city limits, reaching into the heart of rural communities in Clark and Skamania Counties. We recognize the unique challenges and opportunities that our rural Democrats face, and we are here to support and amplify their voices.
Uniting Around Common Goals
The timber industry has been a cornerstone of our rural communities, providing jobs and supporting local economies. We understand the importance of sustainable forest practices that balance environmental conservation and economic growth. Together, let's find solutions that ensure the longevity of our timber industry while preserving our natural resources for future generations.
Supporting Local Farmers and Agriculture
We understand the vital role that local farmers and agriculture play in our community. By supporting local farmers, we not only strengthen our rural economies but also ensure a sustainable and diverse food supply. We are committed to advocating for policies that promote local agriculture, provide support for farmers, and foster a thriving agricultural sector in Clark and Skamania Counties.
Investing in infrastructure is key to fostering economic growth in our rural areas. We are committed to working towards improving roads, bridges, and other critical infrastructure to connect our communities and facilitate the transportation of goods and services. By addressing these needs, we can create jobs and lay the foundation for a more resilient and prosperous future.
In today's digital age, access to reliable broadband is essential. We acknowledge the digital divide in our rural communities and are dedicated to bridging this gap. By expanding broadband infrastructure, we can empower businesses, students and residents to thrive in an increasingly interconnected way.
Access to quality healthcare should not be determined by geography. We recognize the challenges rural communities face in healthcare access and are committed to finding innovative solutions. Together we can work towards assuring that everyone, regardless of location has access to the healthcare they need, when they need it.
Rural Educational Opportunities
Every child deserves access to quality education, regardless of their location. We are committed to supporting rural educational opportunities, whether in the trades or higher education. By investing in vocational training and promoting access to higher education we empower our youth in our rural communities to pursue their dreams.
Equity in Public Education
Our commitment to education extends to assuring that public schools in rural areas provide the same opportunities as those in our urban communities. We advocate for policies that bridge the educational gap ensuring that all students regardless of where they live have access to an education that prepares them for a successful future.
Outreach and Support for Rural Democrats
Amplifying Rural Voices
We believe that every democrat, regardless of location deserves to be heard. We are actively engaging the voices of our rural communities to better understand their concerns and aspirations. By elevating the voices of rural Democrats, we can build a more inclusive and representative party that truly reflects the values of all Democrats in the 17th LD.
Our commitment to rural communities goes beyond words. We are actively engaging in community outreach programs to foster connections, build trust and address the unique needs of our rural constituents. Through open dialogue and collaboration, we can strengthen the bonds that tie us together as Democrats.
