The first in our series of discussions with Washington’s 2020 Congressional candidates.
Kristine Reeves is running for Congress in the 10th Congressional district, which includes Olympia, Puyallup, and parts of Tacoma. The seat was vacated by the retirement of Congressman Denny Heck.
Previously, Reeves was the regional outreach director for Senator Patty Murray, and she’s currently the director of economic development for the military and defense sector for the Washington State Department of Commerce.
In 2016, she became the first African American woman elected to the Washington State House in 18 years, representing the 30th LD. She stepped down from that seat in December of last year.
