It came down to 57 votes

Statement from Karen Hart on recent election results in Washington’s 5th Legislative District: “Our union is proud to have supported Ingrid Anderson, a nurse and long-time union leader, for State Senate. SEIU 925 members who live and work in the 5th Legislative District deserve a state senator who will fight for working families, public health and safety, and education funding. While Ingrid’s challenge was not successful, the fact that only 57 votes separated this first time candidate from her 2-term incumbent opponent sends a clear message: union members will hold elected officials accountable and are not afraid to rally around a true champion for our communities.”

-Karen Hart, President, SEIU 925
