Steve Tharinger

Washington
State House - District 24
Locale: 
Clallam, Gray Harbor and Jefferson Counties
Type of Seat: 
Open Seat
Year: 
2010
Status: 
Elected

Steve is a three-term Clallam County Commissioner, and has been a small business owner and an active community member for over 30 years. Steve grew up in a large family - one of seven children - and his values in public service of economic, social and environmental justice stem from his childhood. Steve will make an excellent seatmate for Rep. Kevin Van De Wege, who we helped elect in 2006. The retiring Democrat Steve seeks to replace was a moderate, making electing him a key part of our strategy to flip four seats to a progressive Democrat.
