Dorothy Gasque

Running for U.S. House of Representatives, 3rd District
Election: Aug. 7, 2018

In a time of uncertainty both inside and outside of the party, Dorothy is still fighting for much-needed change. Whether it is encouraging others to show up to meetings and be the voice of their neighbors, or in the streets supporting those that need us most, she is a champion for those that have been marginalized. As assistant director of the non-profit startup Concerned Humans Against Poverty (CHAP) Dorothy has organized dozens of volunteers that are making immediate positive changes for our houseless neighbors. Dorothy works to support other veterans and is the First Vice Chair of Washington State Veterans and Military Families Caucus.

Dorothy lives in Hazel Dell with her husband Jose who works as an operations manager at Stardust Materials LLC. She is the mother of Ramses, a sophomore in high school. Dorothy enjoys working on her urban farm that includes her dog, cat, 10 chickens, and permaculture yard.
