Meet Angela Marx
Life-long resident of Clark County, WA in the heart of the 3rd Congressional District of WA State. Raised two daughters, helping to raise two granddaughters while my oldest child earns a Civil Engineering degree from PSU.
In 2011 I had a heart attack. It woke me up in ways I can't even describe. It made me take a long, hard look at the future my children and grandchildren were facing. For the most part, I didn't like what I saw.
I've been a political junkie since I watched the Watergate hearings live on tv when I was a young teenager. I've spent two decades urging every person I meet to become a registered voter or to help others become registered voters. I love my community and my country, with a deep and abiding passion. I know that sounds corny, but it's true. I offer the people at the 4th of July events I attend every year a $20 bill if any of them can recite the Preamble to the Constitution from memory - to date, no one has won that $20 and that saddens me greatly.
What I want more than anything is for the people who I care about to have a decent life - and I want that for all the families here in SW Washington State, too. I care about the water and air and land, because I want my grandchildren's grandchildren to be able to enjoy the wonders of our beautiful region just as I and my family and friends do today.
To that end, I want to become the next Congresswoman in Washington State's 3rd District - because I know that I can help the rest of the people of the 3rd District rise up to meet the challenges of the coming years with a reverence for our natural resources and an eye towards sustainable, decent paying jobs for our families and well-funded educational opportunities for our children.
America used to be great for a reason, we did great things. We can again.
#StrongerTogether for a better future for OUR posterity!
THE CAMPAIGN MOVING FORWARD
I look foward to meeting many of the residents of the 3rd Congressional District during this campaign. I will be looking to hear from you on the issues YOU believe should be leading in discussions of What Matters for our little corner of the world. Please watch our Events Calendar as the summer progresses for dates/times where I'll be appearing. Should you wish to ask questions or bring something to my attention please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Unlike Republican Jaime Herrera Beutler, who has not held any open Constitutient Meetings since she first won the office in 2010, you can expect a different type of behavior from me.
I WILL be having regular Open Public Meetings which will be open to anyone who lives in the DIstrict to attend at venues across the District. While I live in the heart of the District in Clark County, I won't be ignoring those who live in the other counties in the District: Cowlitz, Pacific, Lewis, Klickitat, Skamania, Wahkiakum and the Southern border of Thurston. Those Open Public Meetings will take place in each county, ensuring that EVERY VOTER has the opportunity to attend and voice their concerns.
Also, you will find that it doesn't take high dollar donations to get an appointment to meet with me once you elect me to this position. I intend to put the Constitutents FIRST, and will offer as many one-on-one meetings with myself throughout the year to hear your concerns and requests IN PERSON as can be scheduled.
I hope that the people of the 3rd District of Washington State will support my campaign for this office, because I promise that my greatest concern while Serving as your Representative to Congress will be you and your families and how you are meeting the challenges of life in Southwest Washington State.
I ask for your vote in the Primary Election coming July 15 through August 3, 2016.
