While at the Ethnic Media Candidates Meet and Greet, organized by Sea Beez and members of local ethnic media, I enjoyed meeting the female candidates. It is encouraging to see female candidates running for top office. Kim Wyman and Kathleen Drew are pursuing a seat for the Secretary of State. If one of them is elected, that person will be the first woman to hold that office in our state.
Our Supreme Court is diverse, it already has four female justices. If Sheryl Gordon McCloud wins, she will be the fifth woman to serve as Washington State Supreme Court Justice. (end)
