United Way of Snohomish County Executive and Longtime Resident, Katrina Ondracek, Announces Campaign for 44th LD State Representative
Ondracek kicks off campaign with support from local city, county and state leaders
Lake Stevens – United Way of Snohomish County Executive Vice President Katrina Ondracek announced her campaign for State Representative in the 44th Legislative District. Ondracek entered the campaign with endorsements from local leaders across the district including County Councilmembers Hans Dunshee and Brian Sullivan, former Executive John Lovick, State Senator Steve Hobbs, and State Representative June Robinson.
“I have spent my career improving the lives of Snohomish County families by implementing K-3 early learning, workforce development, and affordable housing,” Ondracek said. “Now, I want to put that experience to work in Olympia where I will be an effective, independent voice for job creation, transportation solutions including fixing 405 tolls, funding our local schools, and addressing our region’s growing public safety crisis of drug addiction.”
As Executive Vice President of United Way of Snohomish County, Katrina has led the organization’s public policy efforts, overseen education and financial stability initiatives, led community engagement, and secured critical resources to expand capacity.
“I am running for this seat because there is too much at stake for our families to put partisan politics ahead of people,” said Ondracek. “We deserve leaders who won’t just talk about transportation solutions, but will also vote for the investments that get us there.”
A dedicated community leader, Katrina has served on the boards of Workforce Snohomish, the Housing Consortium of Everett and Snohomish County, the Partnership to End Homelessness, Snohomish County Children’s Commission, and the Snohomish County Emergency Food and Shelter Program.
“Katrina has been a dedicated leader with a proven track record delivering on local priorities,” said County Councilmember and former 44th District legislator Hans Dunshee. “If she says she is going to do something, you can count on her to get it done.”
Ondracek and her husband Mike, a mechanic who works on the Boeing 787, are long time Lake Stevens residents. For more information, visit ElectKatrina.com.
