Hi Reddit! My name is Sarah Smith and I am running for Congress in Washington’s 9th District. The 9th is part of Seattle, Bellevue, and most of South King County, and a hair of Tacoma. I am running with Brand New Congress and am a Justice Democrat here in Washington fighting for Medicare for All, getting big money out of politics, and debt-free education. You might've heard of us as we're the group who helped Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unseat long term incumbent Joe Crowley in New York's 14th District.
I’m challenging a 21-year establishment Democrat and formerly self-described moderate Adam Smith. The 9th is a district filled with working-class people who are facing rising rent costs, increasing commute times, and has one of the largest voting blocs of millennial-aged voters of anywhere in the country. I personally live in Kent where we have a large makeup of people from all over the world.
I'm running because I believe that we have a chance to actually change the political landscape for the first time in my life. I was (and am) a staunch Bernie supporter, even if he and I disagree on some things. I've been engaged in activism throughout my life but the thing that makes me most excited is being able to represent people like me. People who've had to work full-time through school, have had to face and experience houselessness, and have experienced trying to make ends-meet in a post-recession America.
I have a deep commitment to progressivism and I think it’s time we replace longtime lukewarm incumbents with candidates who will bring fire to D.C.
I love video games, I ride a motorcycle, my dog has narcolepsy, and I’m ready for your questions, /r/SandersForPresident, so Ask Me Anything!
