2016 RHAWA PAC Endorsed Candidates

The Rental Housing Association of Washington Political Action Committee (PAC) is pleased to announce its list of 2016 RHA PAC endorsed candidates. This year's elections are an August 2nd primary, and a November 8th general election.

RHAWA's PAC had an active election cycle, both interviewing candidates, and reviewing prior legislative accomplishments, to determine who would receive endorsements in 2016. Supported candidates receive an endorsement based solely on their recognition of rental housing as a valuable asset to communities, their commitment to allowing rental housing to function as a market-based industry, and for their willingness to work with the rental housing industry toward the common goal of providing safe and healthy housing.

RHAWA’s Political Action Committee is an open committee for any RHA member to join. If you’re interested in being added to the committee email list or becoming a PAC member, please contact Sean Martin at (206) 905 - 0609 or by email – smartin@rhawa.org.
