Rep. Sherry Appleton's 2016 Campaign Kick-off will be held on Thursday, June 30 from 5:30 until 7:30 at Kiana Lodge



May, 2016

Dear Friends –

We made it!  After finishing the regular legislative session, we worked through two weeks of the special session and finally came to a budget deal.  The compromise we struck will provide more funding for mental-health programs and funding to retain K-12 staff and support for beginning educators.  We also provided money to pay for the overtime of home health-care providers and to maintain the state need-grant college funding.  And I’m proud to let you know that I was able to secure funding for the North Kitsap Fishline and I was the prime sponsor and driving force behind the creation of the Silver Alert to protect our aging friends, family and neighbors.


But we didn’t get everything we wanted.  Because of the divided legislature, the Republicans used their power to cause total gridlock in Olympia.  The Governor started vetoing bills in an effort to force the Republicans to the bargaining table.  This is no way to govern and Kitsap County deserves better.


I am running for re-election in an effort to fix this broken system.  The Republicans are going to do everything they can to defeat me and add more gridlock down in Olympia.  We can’t let them do that!  You have been such a strong supporter of mine – supporting me to serve in the House of Representatives and represent you.  That is the highest honor I can ever imagine.


Can I count on your support this time around?  We need to keep working for Kitsap County and building on the successes we have accomplished.  If re-elected I will continue to defend health and human services funding; to fight for full funding for education and to ensure that all of our kids have access to a higher education; to create and fund worker retraining programs; to be a voice for the voiceless – I will put Kitsap first!  I have been a steadfast fighter for Kitsap County and with your support, will continue to work to protect our quality of life.


Can I count on you for a contribution of $1000, $500, $250, $100, or whatever you can afford so that we can keep this seat and send me back to Olympia to stand up to the Republicans that just want to see more gridlock and inaction?  Your support will let me keep up the fight to put Kitsap first.  You can contribute online at www.sherryappleton.com or call and we will send you a remit envelope.


I appreciate all you support over the years and look forward to seeing you out on the campaign trail!



Sherry Appleton


P.S.      Your contribution of $1000, $500, $250, $100 or whatever you can afford will help me wage a professional campaign to combat the Republicans who have targeted me.  Let’s be in this together!
