Thoughtful, Steady Leadership

Thoughtful, Steady Leadership

Jay Inslee’s thoughtful, steady leadership has built Washington into a state based on the values we all share: an economy that works for everyone, education that prepares the next generation to succeed, building our clean-energy future, and making Washington a better, more equitable place for all.

The measure of a leader is how they respond in difficult times. Since Washington became ground zero for COVID-19, Jay worked with health experts, local officials and private sector leaders to decisively enact social distancing guidelines, take action to protect Washington families and our frontline workers, and most recently, to begin safely reopening our economy. His strong leadership has been hailed by health experts as having saved countless lives.

As we recover and rebuild from our pandemic-fueled economic crisis, we will need thoughtful, steady leadership that will build on the progress we’ve made as a state.

Washington has always been on the vanguard of invention, a leader in big ideas and bold solutions. Jay’s record of innovative and bipartisan achievement is true to this legacy and has steered Washington in the right direction. 

Under Jay’s leadership, Washington recovered from the last great recession to become the country’s #1 rated economy, and Washington is poised to rebound more quickly thanks to our progressive policies. Our state has the nation’s best Paid Family and Medical Leave, we have expanded health care coverage to 800,000 Washingtonians and created a long-term care benefit for seniors -- all of which put us in a better position to address public health dangers and weather economic hardships.

Jay launched the Career Connect program providing on-site training and apprenticeships for thousands of students to pursue good-paying jobs after high school and has provided free or reduced college tuition for low and middle income students.

His proven experience in difficult times and his successful economic vision are exactly what Washington needs as we rebuild our economy and help families and businesses recover from the pandemic.
