Everett Herald Editorial: Sells, Robinson earn election

Mon, Sep 29, 2014
For position 1, Rep. June Robinson, D-Everett, appointed to replace John McCoy after McCoy moved to the Senate, has been a thoughtful lawmaker and vigorous advocate of the 38th, savoring the mechanics of policy. She holds a masters degree in public health, and previously led the Everett Housing Consortium before moving to King County Public Health. Robinson's health and human services expertise injects needed perspective and leadership (she managed a bill that opened Medicaid funding to low-income tenants.) Her Republican challenger has not actively campaigned.Robinson represents a vital, progressive voice, a welcome addition to an often fusty institution. She has earned election to a full, two-year term.
