TACOMA, WA – Congresswoman Marilyn Strickland announced today she will run for re-election to Congress for Washington’s 10th Congressional District. Congresswoman Strickland, who hosted Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in early May at Chambers Creek in University Place to highlight the impact of bipartisan infrastructure investments in the South Sound, also held a campaign kick-off event with supporters and volunteers in Thurston County. She also filed for re-election with the Washington Secretary of State earlier today.
“The people of the South Sound want a proven leader who will fight for a fairer economy and a nation that is more safe, just, and secure,” said Congresswoman Strickland. “It has been an honor to be the South Sound’s voice in the United States Congress, and I look forward to a positive campaign focused on the issues that really matter to our neighbors in the South Sound.”
In her first term, Strickland has focused on making the economy more inclusive, and secured over $7 billion in bipartisan infrastructure investments as well as over $300 million for the South Sound in the American Rescue Plan. She also serves on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and House Armed Services Committee.
Born in South Korea and raised in the South Sound, Congresswoman Strickland is the first African American and Korean American Woman Elected to Congress from the Pacific Northwest.
