ANDY HILLS KICKS OFF SENATE CAMPAIGN WITH BIG GATHERING IN WOODINVILLE
- EVENT RAISES $30,000 FOR CAMPAIGN -
Andy Hill formally kicked off his campaign for the State Senate from the 45th District with a sold-out fundraising breakfast at the Columbia Winery in Woodinville featuring community, business and political leaders on Thursday, June 10th.
“Olympia has lost touch with the people it claims to represent and I am running to make big changes,” Hill said. “The only way to change Olympia is to change the people we elect to represent us.”
Hill stated that his top priorities would be policies that encourage economic growth and job creation along with funding our schools to give the state’s children the greatest opportunities.
Andy Hill and his family were joined by Attorney General Rob McKenna, Secretary of State Sam Reed, King County Councilmembers Kathy Lambert and Jane Hague, Senate Republican Leader Mike Hewitt, former Senator Bill Finkbeiner and a host of city councilmembers from across the district who all joined in endorsing him.
