The senate race in the 45th LD is vital to Washington State if people want to return a true majority of the Washington State Senate to Democrats.

This race is vital if we want a progressive agenda to pass the legislature and Governor Inslee’s desk.

If you want our children to have a good education, to protect our environment, to create a stronger economy, to secure safety and rights for women and immigrants, to break government gridlock, to close outdated tax loopholes, to expand mental health services, and to invest in renewable energies, we need to elect Manka Dhingra.

Skagit Democrats are assembling a team with the help of the local CD1 & CD 2 Sister District Project to phone bank and canvass for Manka Dhingra in the 45th LD so we can turn the State Senate blue!

Please join your fellow citizens in supporting Manka Dhingra.
There are weekly phone banking and canvassing opportunities.

If you would like to participate in this endeavor, please send an email to with your contact information.

From Manka:  After building a career as a prosecutor, mental health and domestic violence prevention leader, and volunteering in my kids’ schools, I recognized the urgent need to stand up for our rights and values following the election of President Trump.

To protect what we cherish here on the Eastside, we need new voices with experience and passion committed to leading with compassion and integrity.
