"As a Public Hospital Commissioner and parent, I am thrilled to support Bevin McLeod for State Senate. We need champions in the legislature. We need advocates for universal healthcare who understand that healthcare is about more than access to a doctor. Bevin will fight for housing, food security, education, racial justice and more. This is her track record and this is why we need her to be in the State Senate."

Bevin has been a consistent advocate for systemic change -- we need more of that in Olympia if we are going to get different and better results for every Washingtonian."
"As a single working parent, Bevin is the perfect candidate to be a leader in implementing policy that addresses the social determinants of health - from changes needed to our behavioral health system, to housing rights, to jobs with living wages and the right to organize, Bevin knows what's up!

"As a second Generation Teamster, I have had the opportunity to work with Bevin on a number of different issues affecting working women and men in our state. I have personally witnessed her 'Watch me' attitude when folks have told her that it can’t be done or it’s impossible. Then watched this dynamic leader make the 'impossible' possible. Bevin is that leader and we need people like her to fight and advocate for our values in the Senate."
"Bevin knows how to make change happen. Why? She has both the brains and the people skills necessary to build consensus and cooperation among people with different socioeconomic, racial, and political status. She is the woman to lead!"
"Bevin is THE woman to lead! From the moment I met her four years ago, when I heard her speak and challenge traditional candidates and thinking, I asked 'Who is THIS woman?' This woman is someone who has sacrificed, sweated and suffered. The recipe for success. With every fiber in my body, I wholeheartedly endorse Bevin! Go get 'em!"

"Bevin believes that Health is a Human Right. She has spent many hours building relationships with everyday people and decision makers to influence policy and make a difference for Washington residents.

I am grateful that she thinks about whole health - not just healthcare - and strives to improve access to food, housing, nature, employment, and more."
"The 46th District hasn't had a woman in the State Senate for 25 years -- it's time we change that. Bevin is an organizer, advocate, and mom committed to healthy communities, equitable opportunity for all our families, and environmental justice for our future."

For my patients to have the security, that they can receive life changing and life saving care without financial devastation. That all can have the right to healthcare. I've followed Bevin's hard work with the WA Universal Healthcare Commission. I know she'll continue to strive for Washington residents to have the most affordable and best healthcare available. Washington will be the forefront in universal healthcare."
