Dodson Wins Sole "Outstanding" Rating from Muni League

The only 43rd LD Pos. 1 candidate and non-incumbent to earn the highest rating

August 29, 2006

The Municipal League of King County, a non-partisan organization that rates candidates on their involvement, effectiveness, character and knowledge, gave Lynne Dodson an “Outstanding” rating. Dodson is the only candidate in the race for State Representative of the 43rd District to receive a rating of “Outstanding”, and she shares this rating with only 7 other candidates for the State House of Representatives, all of whom are incumbents.

Dodson is endorsed by more legislators, civil rights organizations and unions than any other candidate. Teachers, nurses, firefighters, immigrant rights activists, women’s rights activists, childcare providers, social workers, LGBT activists and workers’ rights activists have all researched and endorsed Lynne Dodson. No other candidate in this hotly contested 43rd District race has earned so many, and such diverse, endorsements.

“I am honored to have received a rating of “Outstanding” by the Municipal League of King County. Fighting for more funding for education and working people’s rights in the legislature, and my ability to bring many groups together has prepared me to be a strong, effective, progressive leader in the State House, “said Lynne Dodson. “I hope to bring my skills to the State Legislature in November and I will represent the 43rd district well.”

Dodson is a teacher at Seattle Central Community College, the former President of the American Federation of Teachers Local Union #1789, a former Co-Chair of Washington State Jobs with Justice and the mother of two young adults.

State legislators Sherry Appleton, Steve Conway, Tami Green, Phyllis Kenney, Zack Hudgins, Bob Hasegawa, Karen Keiser, Adam Kline, Eric Pettigrew, Mary Helen Roberts, Mike Sells and Sharon Tomiko Santos have endorsed Dodson along with many other community leaders.
