Representative Marie Gluesenkamp Pérez is running for a second term to represent Washington's 3rd congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. A small business owner, Perez owns an auto-repair shop with her husband that they opened with a loan from the Small Business Association in 2018. Since 2018, she has served on the Underwood Soil and Water Conservation District Board of Supervisors. Perez has made it a priority to protect our water resources, forests, and farmland. In her short time in Congress she has introduced legislation that seeks to reduce the impact of microplastics in biosolids, on farmland, and, ultimately, in our food supply. She has secured public funding for critical water infrastructure that will prevent sewage runoff from entering the local environment in Southwest Washington. Perez has passed legislation through the House that will allow local governments and tribes to act as forest managers, allowing for more active forest management, which will ultimately reduce wildfires and the harmful greenhouse gasses they produce. Perez is running for Congress to help achieve clean energy independence, expand the availability of electric vehicles, and increase the use of renewable packaging. She is also focused on addressing microplastic pollution and studying the impacts they have on Washingtonians. Representative Perez has earned a 75% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
