Frank's Progressive Agenda:

1. Supporting Working People

Supporting Working People
“As a community activist and then as a legislator, Frank Chopp played an important role in raising the state minimum wage to the highest in the country. In the legislature, Frank is the leader standing up for working people and a Shared Prosperity agenda — passing paid sick leave, preventing wage theft, raising the state minimum wage, and more.”

– Teresa Mosqueda, Washington State Labor Council

2. The Environment

The Environment
“With Frank’s strong leadership, we passed the toughest laws in the nation banning toxic chemicals. I can always count on Frank to protect our children from toxic toys and our environment from harmful chemicals.”

– Laurie Valeriano, environmental health advocate

3. Education

“Teachers and parents know they have a progressive leader in Frank Chopp for education. He led the way for a new $1.3 billion investment in K-12 Basic Education and he will continue to close tax loopholes and identify new funding sources to meet our obligation to our schools.”

– Kate Sipe, teacher at Green Lake Elementary

4. The Safety Net

The Safety Net
“Frank always stands up for the most vulnerable in our community. He led the effort to expand services to help the homeless, including saving and reforming the Disability Lifeline program for the mentally ill and others with disabilities.”

– Tony Lee, Statewide Poverty Action Network

5. Progressive Change

Progressive Change
“Thanks to Frank’s work electing a progressive majority in the legislature, the Washington legislature became the first in the country to repeal the so-called Defense of Marriage Act and enact marriage equality. Frank is a passionate advocate for social justice and civil rights for all.”

– Jamie Pedersen, State Senator, 43rd District
