Vancouver resident will seek position 1 in the 18th Legislative District
VANCOUVER – Stephanie McClintock recently announced her bid to become the 18th Legislative District’s state representative. McClintock is running for position 1, previously held by Rep. Brandon Vick, who is not seeking reelection.
“I am ready to hit the ground running as the 18th Legislative District’s next state representative,” McClintock said. “Under the leadership of Governor Inslee and the Democrats in the state legislature, we’ve seen higher taxes and rising crime in our communities. We can do better, and I’m prepared to be a commonsense voice in Olympia as I work to make our state a better place to live and raise a family.”
“As the daughter of a 31-year police detective, I understand the importance of public safety. I will support the men and women of law enforcement who work tirelessly to keep us safe. I will also work to improve our children’s education, as I did when I served on the Battle Ground School Board,” said Stephanie. “I am incredibly grateful to have the support of all current 18th legislative district legislators and look forward to building on the progress they’ve made for us.”
McClintock’s announcement stated that her “dedication and love for her community has inspired her to run for State Representative of the 18th Legislative District. Making Washington a better place to live and raise a family is high on her priority list. In addition, reestablishing effective policing standards will also be addressed when elected. Stephanie grew up as the daughter of a 31-year police detective and understands the importance of public safety, especially in the face of rising crime. She is committed to supporting our first responders who selflessly risk their lives to keep us safe.’’
“The high crime rates we have today are a result of little to no consequences to those that break the law, we must fully fund law enforcement and enforce our laws,” McClintock said.
While serving on the Battle Ground School Board from 2013 until 2017, McClintock said she learned the complexities involved with all school districts and was a champion for increasing parental involvement within those complex decisions.
“Public education is funded by property owners and we need to see results of those dollars in our students’ knowledge of core subjects and offer robust career and technical education classes,” McClintock said.
McClintock also served as the Clark County Republican Party Chair in 2012 where she coordinated campaigns and worked to promote a strategically conservative agenda.
In her free time, McClintock enjoys giving back to her community. She has spent time volunteering with Prairie High School Boosters and Battle Ground Education Foundation.
McClintock received a Bachelor of Arts in Business Management from Concordia University and is currently working in public relations for United Grain Corporation.
McClintock and her husband Darrin, along with their two sons, Ethan and Ryan, proudly call Vancouver their home.
Early endorsements for McClintock include the 18th Legislative District State Senator Ann Rivers, 17th LD Senator Lynda Wilson and State Representatives Brandon Vick, Larry Hoff and Paul Harris.
