An independent voice for southwest Washington
Carolyn Long knows the value of hard work, and is ready to fight for the people. When Carolyn was in seventh grade, her father was badly hurt just as the family was opening a small business. With her father’s livelihood on the line, CArolyn has to leave school to help her mom run the store. She then went back to school, and after graduating, paid for her college education by working at Safeway, and was a proud member of UFCW Local 555.
A strong advocate for reform
Long knows too many politicians work for their donors, which is why she is not accepting corporate PAC money. She supports overturning Citizens United so we can put power back into the hands of the people. In Washington, Long will be a tireless fighter against the corrupting influence of money in politics.
A key opportunity to turn the west coast blue
In 2018, Long came within 5 points of winning a seat that is historically Republican but that is trending Democratic. Long is running for Congress to replace a Republican incumbent who is in the pocket of special interests, and to fight to change our rigged political system that skews toward big money instead of everyday citizens.
