Skagit County lawmaker racked up 100-percent, pro-small-business voting record
OLYMPIA, Wash., Aug. 28, 2018—He stood up for small business on every vote that mattered during the 2018 session of the Washington State Legislature, and for this has earned an endorsement for re-election from the political action committee for the state’s leading small-business association.
“The NFIB Washington PAC is proud to endorse Sen. Keith Wagoner for election to the State Senate,” said Patrick Connor, today, speaking for the PAC. “His understanding and appreciation of small business as the backbone of our state’s economy – and its leading job creator – was clear from his first days in office. We look forward to continuing to work with Senator Wagoner to help bring jobs and economic opportunity to the people and communities of the 39th Legislative District.”
Wagoner represents parts of King, Skagit, and Snohomish counties, which include the cities of Arlington, Gold Bar, Index, Monroe, and Sultan. He was selected by a vote of electors on January 3, 2018, to fill the remaining term of Kirk Pearson, who left to serve as state director for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s rural development office.
Connor also offered high praise for Wagoner’s breadth of experience as a Marine, naval aviator, mayor of Sedro-Woolley, with a master’s degree in global leadership from the University of San Diego. “His successes at so many endeavors give him the type of insights the Legislature so desperately needs,” said Connor. “Combine that with his rootedness growing up on a farm in Alger, Washington, and it makes him an ideal lawmaker of the people.”
