Marilyn Strickland for Congress
A Proven Leader for the South Sound
The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown our nation into a crisis, and the Trump Administration has failed us. The South Sound needs proven leadership to step up and meet this historic challenge. As the former Mayor of Tacoma and a proud Democrat, I led our region through the last recession, helping create tens of thousands of jobs. As your next Congresswoman, I will bring people together and work with both parties to recover from the COVID crisis, create jobs, protect Social Security and Medicare, pass paid family leave, and invest in clean energy infrastructure.
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.
