With great pleasure, PIVOT strongly endorses Joe Nguyen in his race to represent the 34th Legislative District in the Washington State Senate. Joe will be a progressive champion for the diverse people in his district.
As a son of Vietnamese refugees, Joe was born and raised in the Seattle, WA area. His family was able to settle in Washington with assistance from social services and public housing. Joe’s experiences growing up in an immigrant community and being raised by a single mother due to a tragic accident that rendered his father quadriplegic inform much of his public service today.
Joe is a tireless advocate who consistently shows up for the people. In addition to representing his district’s interests, Joe will work to support public education, defend immigrant rights, and fight for healthcare for all. Despite the diversity of his district, Joe would be the first legislator of color to represent the 34th and first Vietnamese-American legislator in the entire state of Washington.
Joe captures the essence of being a progressive Vietnamese American in his experiences, thoughts, words, and deeds. PIVOT is proud to support him. We encourage all to donate to his campaign and volunteer at http://meetjoenguyen.com/.
