Lytton endorsed by educators for state House, 40th District, position 1 | Political Notebook

Kristine Lytton, candidate for state House of Representatives, 40th District, position 1, has been endorsed by the Public School Employees of Washington (SIEU 1948) and the Washington Education Association.

Earlier endorsements include the American Federation of Teachers (ALF-CIO), the League of Education Voters PAC, Stand for Children, the Washington National Organization for Women, the National Women’s Political Caucus of Washington, United Staff Nurses Union (UFCW 141), and the Washington Conservation Voters.

Lytton, president of the Anacortes School Board, is one of eight candidates for the position being vacated by Dave Quall, who is retiring. The top two candidates in the Aug. 17 primary will advance to the Nov. 2 general election.

Lytton “has managed to combine her passion for education with her ability to work with others to get things done,” Anacortes Mayor Dean Maxwell said in a press release. “I expect good things from her in Olympia.”

The American Federation of Teachers Washington said of Lytton: “Our decision was based ... on the work that (she has) done as an advocate for quality education and for working families in our state.

Ensuring adequate funding for schools and a commitment to preparing Washington students for the global economy are among Lytton’s top legislative priorities.
