Liz Lovelett is an involved, dedicated, informed, articulate leader in the 40th Legislative District. As a fifth generation Fidalgo Island resident, Liz is rooted and invested in her community. She served Anacortes as a city council member for five years, was appointed to the Washington State Senate in February 2019, and was duly elected the following November. She is an advocate for affordable housing, environmental justice, public safety, and is a conduit between local and state government.
As a State Senator, she was proud to champion the values and priorities of the 40th District. She is part of a team of new progressive legislators that pressed for record higher education funding, overdue tax reform, and clean energy investments. As a lifelong area resident, mom, and community leader, she sponsored and passed legislation to protect our beloved orcas, win needed school funding, permanently protect Blanchard Mountain, remove derelict vessels, and invest in projects including the Islands’ Oil Spill Association, Lopez Swim Center, Mount Vernon Library, Lummi Nation Community Park, Skagit Emergency Communications, and the Port of Bellingham waterfront.
She is proud to have made progress in her first two sessions, but there is more to do as we face threats to our rights, environment, healthcare, and most vulnerable community members.
