I fully support Sen. Joe Fain, he deserves your vote

Sen. Joe Fain has been and continues to be an active member of our community. During his tenure, he has worked tirelessly to address the everyday issues that affect his constituents.

For example, he knows that traffic congestion is a headache that commuters face every day. That’s why he established himself as a key negotiator in the passage of the 2015 statewide transportation act. This act will improve traffic flow on 272nd between Covington and Maple Valley; and includes improvements to the state Route 18 and Interstate 90 interchange.

Joe has also played a critical role in securing funding for the new Covington Community Park that is quickly becoming a crown jewel within our community.

Additionally, by supporting the protection and funding for our parks, he has given us the opportunity to continue enjoying the beautiful nature that our state is known for.

One of Joe’s most admirable and relatable characteristics is that he is a family man. He and his wife, Steffanie, just welcomed their second son in June. Knowing the importance of spending the first few weeks at home with a newborn child, Sen. Fain was a proud leader of the bipartisan paid family leave bill passed during this year’s legislative session.

It’s clear that assisting families is one of Sen. Fain’s top priorities and that alone should be enough to win your vote this November.

My family and I personally support Sen. Joe Fain in his reelection as our State Senator for the 47th District.

This is my personal support and not as a letter from the full Covington City Council.
