CAMAS, WA – In case you missed it, Leslie Lewallen’s history of being a fighter and armstrong advocate for conservative values was highlighted by The Chronicle yesterday. The article talks about Lewallen’s rise from prosecuting attorney, to Camas City Council Member and now candidate for congress in WA-03.
Leslie is a 5th generation Washingtonian with a history of public service in her family. She believes in fighting for parent’s voices in schools, eliminating illicit drugs from our communities, and reducing costs for Washington families. As a mother of four in the public school system, she understands the dire need for education advocates and doesn’t shy away from a battle.
From the Chronicle:
“In November 2021, Lewallen was elected to the Camas City Council after “personally” knocking on 5,000 doors in the approximately 25,000-person city, she said. Her biggest concern was the fallout from COVID-19 learning loss and what she saw as lack of parental input. Her term is set to end in 2025.
“I’m my children’s best advocate,” Lewallen said, later adding, “We have 60,000 less students enrolled in the public school system. We’ve seen a 20% increase in private school enrollment. We’ve seen a 40% increase in homeschool enrollment. And those are facts that don’t lie.”
She’s also on the city council’s transportation committee, with a particular focus on the Interstate 5 bridge to Portland.
Other issues she’d bring to Congress, if elected in November 2024, she said, include homelessness, crime and a wish to secure the United States’ border with Mexico.”
Leslie Lewallen’s campaign for congress is continuing to gain momentum and she will fight to be the conservative that holds liberal Democrats accountable in D.C.
