We speak this week with two extraordinary candidates for Representative in the 30th LD, a district that includes the cities of Federal Way, Des Moines, Auburn, Algona, Pacific, and Milton, as well as parts of unincorporated King County.
Jamila Taylor is an attorney and small business owner who is an appointee to the Federal Way Human Services Commission and is on the board of the Judicial Institute. Formerly, she was Statewide Advocacy Council for the Northwest Justice Project, and has worked for numerous community advocacy organizations, including the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative. Ms. Taylor is running for representative in position one, a seat vacated by Mike Pelliciotti, who is currently running for State Treasurer.
And Jesse Johnson is an educator who has served as representative in position two since he was appointed in January to replace Kristine Reeves, who vacated the seat to run for Congress. Previously, he served as a city council member for Federal Way.
