Newsletter: Spotlight on the 45th Legislative District

posted in: Chair's Corner | 0

Greetings Conservatives!

This week we wish to focus on the special election in the 45th Legislative District. As a county political party we cannot make a donation to a candidate outside of our own legislative district. However, individual Republicans can. We have appointed Mike Galligher to chair a committee to help us put together information about this issue for circulation. If you have questions you may contact Mr. Gallagher at, or you may email me at

Ms. Englund has already raised over $225,000, and we have had many in our county donate as well — one person donated $1,000! It is impossible to overstate how important this issue is to our state, and for this reason our entire newsletter this week will focus on this issue.

You can check out her website here.

Mr Gallagher’s report follows:

Fellow Republicans your support is urgently needed!

Jinyoung Englund is the GOP candidate for State Senate in the 45th Legislative District special election.  A Woodinville resident, Jinyoung is a graduate of the University of Washington, a tech entrepreneur, and the daughter of Korean immigrants.  Her husband is an active duty U.S. Marine officer with 17 years of service.

This seat was held by Andy Hill who tragically died last year of cancer.  Dino Rossi was appointed to serve during the current legislative session. Now a Republican victory is essential to keep our 25-24 Republican majority in the State Senate. Otherwise, Jay Inslee and his Democrats will get the INCOME TAX they want!

Please donate to her campaign please go directly to her donation website –

Thank you for your support,
San Juan County Republican Party

 From Englund’s website: “I’m the daughter of immigrants, a second generation military spouse, and entrepreneur. We are both proud alumni of the University of Washington who believe in paying forward the opportunities we have been afforded as Americans.

Growing up, Geoff and I were taught to work hard, think twice before complaining, and to make the most of what we have. As a result, we learned to be resilient, scrappy, and work collaboratively. If you’re a parent, student, or a professional, these skills may be familiar to you as well.

The power of local government is the ability to solve real problems that directly affect our community. As your state senator, I am committed to listening, focusing on issues that matter, and reaching across the aisle to design innovative solutions that directly impact our lives.

It’s up to us to ensure Washington continues to be the best state to live, work, learn, and raise our families. I hope you’ll join our efforts to shape the future of our great state. #NXTGENWA”
