Send me to Congress and I will stand up for the families in Washington’s 8th Congressional District. These are the families I’ve had the pleasure of serving for the past 16 years as a pediatrician in Issaquah, and I know how to listen. I will look at the issues facing our district as a scientist, doctor, and parent, with an eye towards making sure that the patients I take care of today have access to great, affordable healthcare, clean air and water, an excellent public education, and a shot at the American Dream. I am not a slick career politician. I am a pediatrician, a wife, and a mom who thinks it is time to bring some basic common sense to Congress.
I am the daughter of an elementary school teacher and an aerospace engineer. I have been a pediatrician in Issaquah for 16 years, and I am committed to my community. Since the age of 16 when I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, I have understood what it means to worry about health and health insurance. I believe that healthcare is a right, not a privilege. My family and friends span the political spectrum, and I’ve spent my life bridging divides. I have been fortunate to benefit from excellent public primary and secondary education, including my degrees in Astrophysics and medicine. I met my husband, David, at our 10-year high school reunion, and we teach our 8-year-old son, Sam, how important it is to stand up for things that matter and pursue a life of purpose.

Small campaigns like this rely on word of mouth and small, local endorsements. Our opponents have millions of dollars and are backed by giant corporations — we’re relying on small donors and volunteers like you! We’ve also pledged to run a strong, positive campaign and stick strictly to the issues that affect the residents of the 9th.
It didn’t fit into the headline, but it would be more accurate to say that WH Press Secretary, Josh Earnest, gave slow, painful and reluctant birth to some words on the topic of Bill Clinton’s meeting with Loretta Lynch. “I think the bottom line……………..is…………….simply that……..” Earnest looked at his notes every two seconds. His most often-used phrase, apparently written there on his notecard, was: “THE RULE OF LAW.” We should all rest assured that this rule is paramount in everyone’s mind. The rule of law is ruling, despite any appearances to the contrary, and we should believe that, lest it …Continue reading →
Angela Marx is running for the WA-03 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. This is the district running all along the Columbia River — it includes a lot of rural areas and the major urban area of Vancouver, WA.

A Sanders supporter, she is a smart, passionate, well-informed woman who can think on her feet. She has done very well in the debates with her fellow candidates …Continue reading →
