Patty first got involved in politics to fight back against politicians who were trying to cut a preschool program that her kids counted on. When she was told she couldn’t make a difference because she was “just a mom in tennis shoes,” she realized that if she wanted change, she was going to have to lace up those tennis shoes and fight back. Since the moment she was elected, Patty has used every tool at her disposal to help people, solve problems, and offer a clear and loud voice for progressive change. Each day she continues to fight for Washington state’s progressive values and for an economy and country that works for every family and community, not just those at the very top.
