​A Message from Jeralee

I am running for Commissioner of Public Lands to help Washington get beyond business as usual for a clean and just transition through environmental justice, climate security and workforce development. I believe I am just the type of person who can make that happen.

I have been privileged and honored to represent the City of Redmond as Councilmember for the past 7 years. I am an educator, a construction engineer, and social entrepreneur. For the past 15 years, I have been CEO of a nonprofit focused on sustainability and transportation infrastructure. These roles have granted me the skills and knowledge needed to be a successful State Executive for the Department of Natural Resources.

Politically, I am a middle-of-the-road Democrat and have demonstrated that I can work across the isle with Republicans in local government. I consider myself a small-town girl as a granddaughter of Army & Navy veterans with midwest farming roots. I am many kinds of mom: a dog mom, a stepmom and a loss mom. I am a survivor of sexual assault and abuse and am committed to stopping the cycle of abuse created by trafficking in the State and ensuring adequate resources are available for mental health to our public safety work force. I am the only female pro-choice candidate for this position, endorsed by the National Women's Political Caucus, a bi-partisan group supporting women's rights to choose what happens to their bodies. I am also a proud member of a Boeing union family.

I look forward to meeting you on the campaign trail!

Jeralee
