Orcas Women’s Coalition endorsement of candidates | Letter

The Orcas Women’s Coalition (OWC) is pleased to announce their endorsements for the upcoming general election. After the OWC Steering Committee interviewed candidates seeking an OWC endorsement, the full membership was invited to hear the candidates speak and to ask questions prior to voting to endorse or not. Based on that vote, The Orcas Women’s Coalition is proud to endorse Liz Lovelett for Washington State Senator in our 40th Legislative District (lizlovelett.org) and Anne Marie Shanks for a seat on the San Juan County Charter Commission.

Earlier this year, OWC endorsed the following candidates for the Primary election, and continues to support each of them in their run for public office:

• Cindy Wolf for San Juan County Council, District 2 (votecindywolf.com)

• Christine Minney for San Juan County Council, District 1 (christine4council.org)

• Debra Lekanoff for State Representative from the 40th (debralekanoff.com)

• Katie Loring for San Juan Superior Court

And finally, while not an official endorsement, OWC stands in support of Gael Tarleton for Washington Secretary of State, and the Democratic ticket of Biden-Harris.

The OWC endorsement policy can be found on the Orcas Women’s Coalition website at orcaswomenscoalition.org/2020endorsements.
