I am running for State Representative of District 2, which
includes most of Thurston and Pierce Counties.
While campaigning I have often been asked:
“What does a State Legislative Representative do?”
Here is my answer: “Representatives make the State’s laws.”
When I am elected and you contact your local
Representative to tell them how you want them to vote,
will be the person you will be speaking with.
JeanMarie is committed to creating more jobs, preserving civil liberties, the protection of our environment, and the freedoms insured by our Constitution for all Americans.
JeanMarie supports education, schools and teachers, remembering that our future lies with our children.
JeanMarie desires to protect the environment by finding new alternative energy solutions, capitalizing on renewable resources in our own district, and actively participating in developing these local commodities and assets.
JeanMarie encourages rural and agricultural economic vitality with domestic food production.
JeanMarie requires fiscal accountability with the wise use of taxpayer dollars, ” quoting her website.
“JeanMarie Christenson, a Democrat who ran for the Legislature in 2006, is among the first to announce shes running again.
She announced last week shes taking another run at incumbent Rep. Jim McCune, R-Graham, in the 2nd Legislative District.
