#joyforwashington every time I see one of these signs I smile thinking about the candidate behind the name. Proud to call this lady my best friend. She's passionate about many things such as comprehensive healthcare for everyone, the environment, affordable housing, and veterans services just to name a few. I've observed her in countless conversations with her constituents, strangers in a store, and homeless citizens on the street. She listens to understand and is always thinking and strategizing for the best outcome in any situation. Joy Pratt Stanford you're amazing!! Read your voter pamphlet my peeps!

Joy will be a strong advocate for the needs of people in our district and will work with her colleagues in the House to pass legislation that makes sense for all of us. Her knowledge of and experience with important topics like affordable housing, education, and healthcare are needed to ensure that our state makes progress in these critical areas. It’s time that our district was represented by people who care about others and want to move forward. Joy is one of those people. I urge you to give her your vote.”
