Jeanette Burrage is running for state representative .
Burrage will run again
Jeanette Burrage announced her candidacy for State Representive in the 33rd District,
Jeanette Burrage was raised in Burien and has lived in Des Moines for over 20 years.
She is a former State Representative from the Burien area and now serves on the Des
Moines City Council.
Jeanette wants to make Olympia more responsible to students, employees and the general
public. She wants to work with other legislators to fully fund schools. This means
prioritizing spending so schools and colleges come first. As a former substitute school
teacher and a current school bus driver, Jeanette understands the need. As a former
budget analyst, she knows how to make it happen.
Jeanette understands that lack of sufficient roads affect us all in congestion and in losing
jobs to areas with better roads. This is especially important near the Port of Seattle and
Kent industrial areas, where goods and services can be distributed.
Having served on the City Council in 1993-1994, she can see how the State has made it
more difficult for many cities to fund basic services like police and roads. She wants to
help direct a State budget that restores city tax revenues that have recently been retained
by the State.
