The News Tribune editorial board got it right when it endorsed state Rep. Dawn Morrell for another term in the House of Representatives.
Morrell has served the 25th Legislative District and the people of the state of Washington for the last four terms, and she has done it well.

Always looking out for the working people’s issues and standing up for veterans, children and working families are just a few reasons Morrell continues to have my full support.

As a critical care nurse at Good Samaritan Hospital, she is on the front lines when it comes to medical care in our state, and we can count on her to always have our backs on the important issues we are facing during these tough economic times.

Morrell worked hard to make sure that Washingtonians can buy affordable prescription drugs from Canada, and she is not afraid to go toe to toe with the powerful drug manufacturers. She was a leading champion for the “Health Coverage for all kids by 2010” law.

She has fought for smaller classes, early learning and al-day kindergarten, and for funding student grants for career and technical colleges.

Morrell has my full support in the Aug. 17 primary election and the Nov. 2 general election.
