Meet Cara


Quite simply, I’m a mom, a grandmother, a wife, a small farmer, and a business professional fed up with polarized politics and the degradation of rights from the current Supreme Court that is undermining decades of precedent and the rights of all citizens.

I am a registered Democrat who believes we must all return to the table and start working together again on the issues that matter to us here in the 19th LD.  here. My entire life, I have been the peacemaker, negotiator, and calm in the storm; that is what I want to be for you.

I am currently the Director of Production for Aspiritech, a non-profit technology company that hires and trains neurodiverse individuals on the autism spectrum. For more than 25 years, I have been a program manager in the Information Technology field. A big part of my success is listening to the needs of my workers, the teams, and clients, negotiating solutions that work for everyone, and then implementing and following a plan of action to accomplish those goals. These are the skills I will rely on to make me a successful Representative for the people of the 19th District and all of Washington.

My promise to you:

I will vote on EVERY bill, so you know how I represent you.

I will always be willing to speak to you, whether you voted for me or not.

I will always be open to hearing your opinion on a bill before I vote.

I am here to represent everyone in the 19th LD and help create policies that benefit all of Washington. I humbly ask for your support for my campaign for Legislative Representative Position 2 in the 19th LD to defeat Joel McEntire.
