Shewmake challenges Ericksen for state senate seat


Sharon Shewmake (D-Bellingham), representative for 42nd legislative district, announced she is challenging Doug Ericksen (R-Ferndale) for the Washington State Senate seat.

Shewmake was elected to the state’s House of Representatives in 2018. She is the vice chair of the House Rural Development, Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee; serves on the State Covid-19 Economic Recovery Commission and the Capital Budget and Environment and Energy Committees.

“In 2018 I was elected to the House and now I’m ready to make sure you’re represented in the Senate.” Shewmake wrote in the announcement. “I’ve enjoyed working for you in Olympia and when you reach out, I take the time to listen and make sure you get the help you need. This year I believe even more strongly that Whatcom County needs a Senator who understands the challenges you’re facing and who will work every bit as hard as you do.”
