‚ÄúI believe in supporting the WSNA-PAC so that we can advocate for candi¬≠dates who will go to Olympia and advocate for nurses and patients.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúI challenge all Washington state nurses to provide finan¬≠cial support to the PAC. Think about donating the equiv¬≠a¬≠lent of a cup of coffee a month, or making a PAC contri¬≠bu¬≠tion equal to one hour of your pay.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúWhen I received the endorse¬≠ment and contri¬≠bu¬≠tion from the WSNA-PAC, I was absolutely thrilled. I knew that my colleagues were behind me, and I was with them. We need to give to our WSNA-PAC. We must have nurses, and people who support nurses, repre¬≠senting us in elected office.‚ÄĚ

WSNA-PAC facts #

What is WSNA-PAC? #

The Washington State Nurses Associ­a­tion Polit­ical Action Committee (WSNA-PAC) was estab­lished to contribute support for statewide and state legisla­tive candi­dates who have demon­strated their belief and commit­ment to the legisla­tive and regula­tory agenda of the Washington State Nurses Association.

How does WSNA-PAC decide who to endorse? #

Endorsed candi¬≠dates are strong on nursing and patient safety issues, regard¬≠less of polit¬≠ical affil¬≠i¬≠a¬≠tion, and must complete a candi¬≠date question¬≠naire and an inter¬≠view. Incum¬≠bents‚Äô voting records are consid¬≠ered, and the district‚Äôs past voting patterns are also taken into account.

Where does WSNA-PAC money come from? #

All WSNA-PAC funds are raised indepen­dently from volun­tary individual contri­bu­tions. No WSNA dues money is used to support candidates.

Who can contribute to the WSNA-PAC? #

WSNA members and non-members can contribute to the WSNA-PAC.

How does WSNA-PAC decide which candi­dates to contribute to? #

The WSNA-PAC Board consists of 11 members whose role is to make endorse¬≠ments and finan¬≠cial contri¬≠bu¬≠tion decisions in statewide and state legisla¬≠tive elections. Please visit www‚Äč.wsna‚Äč.org/pac to learn more about WSNA-PAC‚Äôs endorse¬≠ment process.
