The Advocacy Partnership Project, a program of The Arc of Washington State, puts the power of change into the hands of people with developmental disabilities and their families. One of the goals of the project is to provide the information to make informed decisions to self advocates, their family and friends, providers who serve them and interested community members. Toward that goal, The Arc created a short questionnaire and emailed it to candidates running for the state legislature. We have compiled the responses received, by district, for advocates to review and make informed choices on election day. If you are unsure what district you live in, go to http://apps.leg.wa.gov/DistrictFinder/Default.aspx and enter your address.
Each response contains the candidates name and email address (when available) so that if no response was returned, you can email your questions to the candidate personally or ask for additional information on responses submitted. Your vote is your power! Make sure you are informed when you mark your ballot!
