Guy Palumbo has the experience and leadership to enact common-sense solutions to the biggest issues facing Washingtonians. He is the best candidate for State Senate in the 1st Legislative District.

The Alliance for Gun Responsibility has endorsed Guy Palumbo for State Senate for Legislative District 1 because he is a thoughtful, passionate champion for Washington’s families. Guy’s record of public service has always been built on transparency and accountability. And he will bring that focus and energy to curbing the devastation of gun violence in our state.

The 1st has been affected by high-profile gun violence. In 2015, thirteen young people took their own lives in Snohomish County, half used firearms. At a party in Mukilteo more recently, a UW Bothell student shot and killed three others.

Gun violence in the 1st mirrors the state-level, which kills hundreds of Washingtonians every year. Gun violence is a complex issue that will take strong leadership and a holistic data-driven, common-sense approach to address.

We need leaders in Olympia who will put Washington’s families ahead of special interest groups – leaders who will stand with us as champions for safer communities.

Guy Palumbo is that leader. Vote Palumbo for State Senate, 1st Legislative District.

Renee Hopkins, CEO, Alliance for Gun Responsibility
