SHAY SCHUAL-BERKE Democrat
STATE REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT 33 POSITION 1
Committee to Elect Shay Schual-Berke
604 S.W. 206th Street
Seattle, WA 98166-4136
Phone: 206.795.6089

The only medical doctor during her six years in the Legislature, Shay is uniquely qualified to fight to reform healthcare, make it affordable and available. An effective, powerful voice for constituents, she knows listening to citizens, representing what they need in Olympia, is the most important part of her job.

Former school board member, currently Banks and Insurance committee chairwoman, her record includes laws to keep medical services available to children, seniors and women; create jobs; reform senior property taxes; strengthen public schools; and protect consumers against fraud.

Shay is our effective voice for quality healthcare, education and responsible government.

BRUCE ELLIOTT Republican
STATE REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT 33 POSITION 1
Friends of Bruce

Kent, WA 98032-4244
Phone: 253.852.6745

Hello, my name is Bruce Elliott. I am 51 and a 4th generation Washingtonian, raised in Renton, and a 1976 graduate of WSU. I have been an entrepreneur in transportation and agriculture since that time.

I consider state government too complex and regulations burdensome. I will propose no new laws with the exception of those that repeal old laws, allow privatizing or competitive bidding of some government services, and promote performance audits of state agencies.

I’ve filed for this election because 33rd district voters should have a choice at the polls. Please give me your vote, you won’t be disappointed.

DAVE UPTHEGROVE Democrat
STATE REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT 33 POSITION 2
Upthegrove Campaign
PO Box 13543
Des Moines, WA 98198
Phone: 206.824.7601

I would be honored to continue serving as your State Representative.

We need to create good paying jobs with benefits, make health care more affordable, and invest in education. That’s why I worked to secure $2 million for the 228th freight corridor in Kent to help local businesses compete and provide jobs, passed prescription drug reform to keep health care costs down, and obtained $15 million to noise-insulate schools around Sea-Tac Airport.

Born and raised in South King County, I will continue to take an independent balanced approach that puts our community concerns ahead of party politics.
