Washington Governor Jay Inslee's Visionary Accomplishments:

--Ensured that regulatory review of proposed energy projects includes a comprehensive analysis of greenhouse gas impacts.
--Electrified the state’s transportation system, including support for more electric vehicles and electrifying our ferries. Washington remains among the top three states for zero-emission vehicle penetration, and the state is helping to lead that trend through its aggressive procurement policy.

--Implemented a Clean Air Rule to cap carbon emissions.

--Protect Washington’s orca and salmon populations through numerous efforts to prevent oil spills and reduce toxic substances.
--Investing in an education system that sets up all students for success, from early learning to career training
--Tackled the decade-long struggle to fully fund basic education and reinvesting billions of new dollars into our K-12 schools so they can hire and retain good teachers, provide mentoring for new educators, and provide ample support for students.
--Enacted unprecedented expansion of early learning and all-day kindergarten.
--Made Washington one of the top five states for increased higher education funding, the first-in-the-nation tuition reductions for all college students in 2015 and the most robust financial aid program in the nation.
--Launched the transformative Career Connect Washington initiative to help all students find a pathway to in-demand jobs through apprenticeships, mentorships, and other career-connected opportunities.
Promoting a strong economy and a valued workforce


--Consistent recognition for being one of the nation’s top economies and states for business.
--Bipartisan passage of a 16-year, $16 billion transportation and transit package.
--Passage and implementation of the nation’s best paid family and medical leave program.
--Protecting net neutrality through passage of first-in-the-nation net neutrality legislation.
--Preparing Washington’s businesses and workers for sustained economic success through career-connected learning, promotion of research and development in innovative sectors, and policies to support economic security for all workers such as individual marketplaces for retirement savings and health care.​
​--Civil rights and justice reform
--Signed the Equal Pay Opportunity Act which makes it easier to hold employers accountable for providing equal pay and promotion opportunities to all employees
--Signed the bipartisan DREAM Act to give every aspiring young Washingtonian a chance to go to college regardless of where they were born.


--Signed one of the nation’s most comprehensive Access to Democracy Packages that makes it easier to register and vote including a state Voting Rights Act, automatic voter registration and pre-registration for 16- and 17-year olds.
--Promoted the rights of the LGBTQI community through policies to ban conversion therapy, provide a way for non-binary individuals to change their gender on their birth certificates, ensuring transgender individuals are not discriminated against for health coverage, and more.
--Enacted a death penalty moratorium based on the unequal application of capital punishment.
--Implemented Washington’s recreational marijuana market, including the launch of the Marijuana Justice Initiative that offers pardons to thousands of individuals with misdemeanor marijuana conviction​.


--Data-driven and transparent state government
--Launched Results Washington, a nationally-recognized, data-driven effort to improve the efficiency and transparency of state government.
--Ensured transparency by choosing not to use executive privilege to withhold records.
--Implemented continuous improvement and Lean management systems throughout state government that are saving money and time for agencies and the people and businesses they serve, as well as helping improve state employees’ job satisfaction

He'd put Stacy Abrams in his Cabinet, too -- he hasn't made public speeches on her behalf for nothing!

9. Yep!

 

I’m all in.

Already put a little money where my mouth is - toward his campaign.

I like what I’m seeing.

I like what I’ve heard - both about and directly from him.

I like what I’ve read.

I have yet to see, hear, and read anything about him that I don’t like. And granted, NO candidate is perfect or checks all the boxes I hope to see checked. But this guy comes closer to acing every issue better than anybody else out there, to date.

You talk about the climate crisis and right away, you’ve got my attention.

7. Hey ancianita - this thread is TERRIFIC! An outstanding resource thread!

 

I hope people here bookmark it. Sure gives a superb overview of Inslee’s track record on the issues. He’s great on all environmental concerns, especially as applied to business, technology, and job creation, and looking, planning, and working into the future. That’s the kind of thinking and hands-on action we need all over the country!

18. A likely scenario would be an endorsement from Al Gore, who is

 

the current face of "Climate Change". Gore's endorsement now would be lost in the shuffle. Once the field is winnowed down to five or six, and Gov. Inslee is among that group, I expect Gore to back him. Bigtime.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Gore accompanying Gov. Inslee on the campaign trail.
