Action DD Releases List of Candidates to Support

I just received an e-mail from Maureen Durkan and our good friends at Action DD listing the candidates they are recommending for support. The following list and comments were prepared by Action DD lobbyist Rick Jensen:

"Legislative friends that will need our help:

House Speaker Frank Chopp (D), friend of RHCs
Sen. Margarita Prentice (D), Chair, Sen. Ways & Means Committee
Sen. Mark Schoesler (R), Minority Floor Leader and local friend of Lakeland Village
Rep. Al O'Brien (D)
Rep. Christine Rolfes (D), friend of Francis Haddon Morgan Center
Rep. Sherry Appleton (D), friend of FHMC
Rep. Chris Hurst (D), friend of Rainier School
Rep. Dan Roach (R), friend of Rainier School
Rep. Maralyn Chase (D), friend of Fircrest
Rep. Roger Goodman (D), friend of RHCs
Rep. Liz Loomis (D), friend of RHCs
Sen. Karen Fraser (D), Sen. Capital Budget Chair
Sen. Curtis King (R), friend of Yakima Valley School
Rep. Joe Schmick (R), friend of Lakeland Village
Rep. Steve Hailey (R), friend of Lakeland Village
Rep. Dan Newhouse (R), friend of YVS"

Obviously, this is Action DD's list, not the Federation's list, but I thought it would be of interest to some of our members, especially those in the developmental disabilities field. Having said that, I personally think Rick's analysis is pretty solid. For more information about Action DD, go here. -- Dennis
