It is about staying connected and building long-lasting relationships. As a father and business owner, I am experiencing many of the same struggles and frustrations as the people I am seeking to represent. That is a powerful connection and one that I will carry with me to Olympia.

There is an overwhelming message of economic concern from families and businesses. My focus in the Legislature next year is working on real and impactful solutions for economic rebuilding and recovery in a fiscally responsible way.

Peter works tirelessly for his community. His hard work and commitment will make him a very effective state representative. In times like these we need Peter’s energy, experience and leadership. I endorse Peter and ask you go join me in supporting Peter Abbarno for State Representative.

Peter Abbarno is a small business owner and attorney with Althauser Rayan Abbarno, LLP. Peter lives with his wife Holly (Hawes) Abbarno, a math teacher at Centralia Middle School, and their two children Sophia and Antonio, elementary school students. In 2015, Peter was successfully elected to the Centralia City Council, re-elected to the Centralia City Council in 2019, and voted Mayor Pro Tem in 2020.

I am focusing the early campaign on developing relationships with people in the community by calling them and connecting with them through video and phone conferencing. However, fundraising and earning endorsements is important at this stage of any campaign; especially from individuals and businesses seeking solutions to common problems.

From Day 1 until Election Day, my campaign will be talking about solutions and leadership and how we keep the 20th District strong and working for us in the Legislature.
