SEATTLE – Today, State Rep. Frank Chopp filed for re-election as a candidate for state representative in the 43rd LD. Chopp – who represents the 43rd in the Legislature and previously served as speaker of the House – cited the need for strong and experienced leadership to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a bold and progressive vision to make long term investments in our communities, summarized in his ambitious Five-Point Agenda.
“The legislative session ahead will be one of the most challenging for our state in decades. I’ve represented this district during previous recessions, and I will bring my experience and deep knowledge of our district’s needs to push for real investments that drive economic recovery, protect needed services against cuts, and implement my progressive Five-Point Agenda,” said Chopp. “I’m proud to be endorsed by the organizations who represent the health care and essential workers on the frontline of this pandemic. Their trust and support is critical as we work together to address the negative health and economic effects of this crisis.”
Chopp has won early endorsements from unions representing health care and other frontline workers, including SEIU 775, SEIU 1199NW, and SEIU 925. He has also earned support from his seatmates Sen. Jamie Pedersen and Rep. Nicole Macri, Seattle City Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda, countless community leaders, and organizations and labor unions, including the Retired Public Employees Council, IBEW 48, the Sheet Metal Workers, and more.
