Gearing Up for 2014

Rodney Tom, December 12, 2013

Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting my website!  Quite a lot has been happening recently that I want to update you on as well as let you know what to expect this upcoming session.

Majority Coalition Caucus (MCC) Formation

I’ve long said that people in our area care more about the bottom line than the party line.  That’s why I am proud to be the Leader of the Majority Coalition Caucus, a bipartisan group of State Senators who formed a coalition last year to lead the State Senate.   The original group of 25 Coalition members agreed to 5 common principles of our Caucus:

  1. Budget sustainability
  2. Promoting job creation
  3. Reforming and enhancing education
  4. Protecting the vulnerable while prioritizing middle class Washingtonians
  5. Holding government accountable

We set out to operate like Washington State, not like Washington D.C., giving members of the opposing caucus a seat at the table and opportunities to chair committees.  Fundamentally, we began with–and continue to focus on–policy before politics, solutions instead of partisanship. (more…)

Thank you for supporting my 2010 re-election campaign!

Rodney Tom, November 17, 2010

Thank you very much for supporting my 2010 re-election campaign to the Washington State Senate!

This campaign was successful because of people like you!  Without your support, we would not be where we are today.

I am looking forward to tackling the challenges ahead and working hard for the people of Washington State.  Please stay in touch, as the only way to truly represent you is to hear from you.
