Manka Dhingra is organized labor’s endorsed candidate in the special election for Washington State Senate in the 45th Legislative District. She’s a King County prosecutor and a community leader on mental health and domestic violence prevention issues. Fed up with the cynical politics of Donald Trump and Republican efforts to take away health care, Manka decided to run for the Legislature.
The mother of two children who attend public schools, Manka Dhingra believes that public schools are the foundation of our economy. She is committed to ending gridlock in the Legislature so our state can improve education funding and resources for early learning and child care. Manka says that when we invest in our schools and our children’s future, we’re investing in an economy that works for everyone.
