Support for Congressman Rick Larsen | Letter

I’m proud to write this letter of support for Congressman Rick Larsen. As Washington State continues to face the COVID-19 pandemic, we need leaders like Rick who has a proven record of fighting for workers and middle-class families.

Rick and his team have worked tirelessly to help Washingtonians who have been affected by COVID-19, which is something I know from firsthand experience. Earlier this year, my spouse and I were passengers, stuck and quarantined aboard the Grand Princess Cruise Ship before being transferred to quarantine at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in California.

We felt extremely fortunate amongst our fellow passengers that we had a Congressman who reached out and took an immediate interest in our plight. Rick, along with his team in Washington D.C. kept us informed daily of our situation, ultimately seeing that we were being taken care of properly and transported home as soon as possible. It’s hard to convey how meaningful this was during an extremely stressful situation, and how appreciative we are to Rick for his help.

Throughout his time in office, Rick has shown his commitment to supporting 2nd District residents. His focus on investing in long-term economic growth that creates more jobs and opportunity is what our region really needs, especially now as we face an economic crisis. Rick will continue to work in Congress to help people in our region.

I hope you will join me in supporting Rick for re-election.
