“Norma works effectively for all our state’s residents. She can identify issues, learn, and lead others to solutions. I am grateful for her successful work to preserve net neutrality and data privacy.”

Jill Boudreau Mayor - Mount Vernon, WA

“Small business owners know they can count on Rep. Norma Smith to look out for them in the state legislature. She digs in on critical issues that really make a difference in how small businesses are impacted by state government, but often don’t get the attention they deserve. Norma has led the charge to reduce red tape and hold state agencies accountable. She’s won concessions instilling entrepreneurship and small business requirements in economic development programs that would otherwise benefit big, out-of-state players. That’s why she’s earned NFIB’s Guardian of Small Business award an impressive five times so far. We are fortunate to have Rep. Norma Smith, a thoughtful, determined, and reliable friend to small business serving in the state legislature.”

Patrick Connor NFIB Washington State Director National Federation of Business

"We commend Rep. Smith for her exceptional, bipartisan championship on statewide mental health issues. Her work not only promotes public safety but is also a great service to people suffering from mental illness, their families and others who care for these individuals. We hope she will be retained to carry on this needed, good work for years to come."

Seth Dawson People for Safe & Healthy Communities

"Honorable Norma Smith:

I am happy to inform you that the LEOFF 1 Coalition is proud to endorse you in your 2018 election.

LEOFF 1 Coalition is the only statewide organization that represents only retired LEOFF 1 members: Deputy Sheriffs, PoliceOfficers, and Fire Fighters. The mission is to protect the LEOFF 1 Law and Trust Fund for members and their spouses.

LEOFF 1 Members are Retired Law Enforcement Officers and FireFighters who spent a lifetime of serving and protecting the citizens and their property twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Their duties over a demanding career carried a great deal of risk. These men and women were here to protect you, and now it’s time for you, the Legislators, to protect their pension. Their pension was part of their benefit package and a signed contract at the time of their employment.

A promise made should be a promise kept.

Thank you for protecting the LEOFF 1 pension.

Good luck on your campaign."

Joyce Willms LEOFF 1 Coalition
