Since May 1, 2012, we have been calling and door-belling voters in the 7th Congressional District, the former territory of Jim McDermott. Since then, we have reached over 40,000 registered voters.
Due to redistricting, the new 7th CD reaches from Edmonds down through Normandy Park and Burien.
Andrew Hughes is a local tax attorney, originally from Pulsbo. He has a Law Degree from Seattle University, as well as, a Master’s in Taxation from the UW’s School of Law. His main focus is the economy and redirecting revenue to the middle class and small business owners.
Though economic recovery is Andrew’s main focus, he is also socially progressive and has been active within Seattle’s LGBT community. As a team, we had such a great time canvassing the Seattle Pride parade, and talking to some incredibly interesting, supportive, and excited individuals about the campaign.
Regardless of the weather, as a team we are out in different communities every weekend reaching voters. In order to meet face to face with thousands of residents within the 7th CD, each of us walk an average of 20 miles a weekend.
Andrew and our managers are always out facing the elements with us, we all want to reach as many people as possible and finally be able to offer voters a viable alternative to incumbent Jim McDermott. Thus far, we have been largely successful and in addition to gaining future votes, we have been fundraising among individual supporters in order to be able to continue without corporate support.
Thank you for your interest in our campaign and feel free to contact us with questions or concerns at any time! Enjoy your read, and happy voting.
