Marilyn Strickland for Congress
A Proven Leader for the South Sound
The COVID-19 global pandemic has thrown our nation into a crisis. The Trump Administration has failed us. Instead of first helping those who most need it, they are bailing out Wall Street and prioritizing wealthy campaign donors. This is unacceptable. The South Sound needs proven leadership to step up and meet the challenge. As the former Tacoma Mayor and a lifelong Democrat, I’m ready to lead Washington’s 10th Congressional District through this economic recovery and work with others to pass progressive policies, just like I did for Tacoma.
I’m Marilyn Strickland, and it will be my honor to represent you in Congress in Washington’s 10th District. I was born in Seoul, South Korea. My father, who fought in World War II and Korea, met my mother while he was stationed there after the war. If elected to Congress, I will be the first African-American to represent Washington state at the federal level, and the first Korean-American woman elected to Congress in its 230-year history.
