As you may have heard, our friend 6th District State Representative Kevin Parker has decided not to seek re-election. I am so grateful to Kevin for his years of service and glad that Ian Field is running to ensure the 6th District continues to have strong representation.
Ian Field’s work ethic and common sense will make him an excellent representative—he’s already running a strong campaign, with over 200 supporters at his Kickoff two weeks ago. Ian has raised more money and knocked on more doors than any of the other candidates, and I know he will do the work it takes to keep this seat in responsible hands.
Ian has worked with many community leaders, and they’ve joined Kristin and me supporting Ian: Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Representative Kevin Parker, Kim Plese, Steve Salvatori, Carol Wendle, and many others.
This won’t be an easy race—the 6th Legislative District is the only swing district east of the Cascades. This year, we have a chance to break the west-side hold on the State House, but control hinges on this seat. Labor unions and special interests will pour in money to try to hold on to power in Olympia.
We know, we need to continue to have pragmatic leaders in the mold of Kevin Parker. The key thing is to put community ahead of partisan games. To listen and serve.
That’s what Ian will do and we need to get behind Ian now to ensure he has the resources to win.
I hope that you will consider supporting Ian’s campaign with a generous contribution. Each individual may give $2,000; a couple may give $4,000. A business may also contribute $2,000.
Additionally, Kristin and I are hosting a reception at our home on Thursday, June 30. Please consider Co-Chairing the event with us at $1,000 per couple, or join us for the Host Committee at 5pm ($500 per couple) or the General Reception at 6pm ($100 per person). Please find more details and RSVP information below.
I hope you can make it—but, if even if you cannot be there, please join us in supporting Ian with a generous contribution.
Kristin and I know—winning a race like this takes dedication, hard work, and resources. Ian will do his part—doorbelling, shaking hands, and putting up yard signs. Now we have to do our part and help him financially.
Thanks for all that you do for Spokane.
