Schrier is the best fit for Congress

Kim Schrier has my unequivocal support for Congressperson of Washington’s 8th Congressional District.

We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have had Kim as our pediatrician for more than 10 years. Over the course of her campaign, listening to her debate, talking to her at socials, I have come to recognize that she is a multifaceted and extremely pragmatic candidate for Congress. Not only is she a pediatrician, well versed in the issues and challenges families in our community struggle with, she is also very familiar with other challenges facing our country.

The U.S. Congress handles a broad spectrum of issues, ranging from the complexity of health care, farm and family policies, to the technical nuances of defense, space and the environment. Kim is a candidate who can work across this broad spectrum and, importantly, has the interpersonal skills to collaborate across the aisle.

As a candidate, she has demonstrated the same level-headedness, competency and judgment as we have known in her practice. She is exactly who we need to help return Congress to being a functional organization, working for the constituents in our district and our core values as a nation. I can think of no better candidate.
