I worked at my father's produce stand growing up, I worked at Safeway to pay for college, I've taught at WSU Vancouver for 23 years.

We've held 34 town hall meetings. People really feel that southwest Washington has been ignored for the last 8 years. They are concerned that they don't have access to affordable healthcare, about the rising costs of prescription drugs. And they are very concerned that congress is going to start looking to cut Social Security and Medicare. That's why I'm running. I want to fight for you every single day. I'm Carolyn Long.

People over Politics:

To me, that means focusing on the values that unite us as Americans. I am running to represent Southwest Washington, and to represent your voice in Congress. We need a representative who puts the needs of the people over the influence of special interests. Southwest Washington deserves better. Together we can take back Washington’s 3rd and put People Over Politics.
