Susan Soto Palmer for State Representative (D)

I discovered this beautiful state and region in 2010 after relocating from Texas.  The 2012 presidential election enlightened, inspired and activated me into action.  Empowered, I knocked on doors, attended community events, rallies and vigils as part of my involvement with grassroots organization. My decision to run for your state representative has been shaped by the triumph and tribulations of our ethnically diverse communities.  Together we can champion for culturally responsive policies which support families, place education at the forefront and promote safe, strong and economically viable communities.  With your vote, our voices will be heard in Olympia!
