CAMAS, WA – Today, Tim Hein, a Camas City Council Member, endorsed Leslie Lewallen for WA-03. The announcement is another significant endorsement for the Lewallen campaign, as Leslie continues to build a broad base of support across Washington state.

“Politics today are marked by tribalism which makes accomplishing any meaningful legislative victories difficult. We need elected leaders who are willing to work together in a non-partisan way to best serve their constituents. I have had the pleasure of working with Leslie on the Camas City Council and have been impressed by her ability to seek common ground to accomplish our work on behalf of the city. I have no doubt that Leslie will take this same approach with her as the next Representative for Washington- 03!” said Hein on announcing his endorsement.

Tim Hein graduated from the United States Military Academy with a Bachelor of Science degree and then went on to earn a Master’s in Business Administration from Pacific Lutheran University. After serving for six years as an active duty officer in the Army, he went on to serve for 25 years in Executive Leadership positions for numerous medical device companies. Tim served for 17 years as a member of the Camas Planning Commission while also being involved with the Camas Education Foundation and the budget committee for the School District Superintendent. Tim and his wife have two sons, both graduates of Camas High.

Sometimes the hardest place to garner support is in your own hometown,” said Lewallen. “which makes Tim’s endorsement even more meaningful. I’ve been fortunate to work closely with Tim as a fellow Camas City Council member. I have seen his dedication to our community and his commitment to working with all Council members, regardless of ideological background. He is passionate about delivering results for the residents of Camas and ensuring our town is positioned to grow in the coming years. Tim’s example of finding common ground and working for the good of his constituents is one I look forward to emulating when I get to D.C. to represent the voters of Southwest Washington.”

The Lewallen campaign continues to receive endorsements from a dynamic group of supporters from every walk of life and background- demonstrating that Leslie is the best candidate to represent the diverse voters of Southwest Washington. While Marie Gluesenkamp Perez actively votes against the interests of WA-03 constituents, Leslie Lewallen will fight to show voters that there is a better path forward.
