McMahan eyes another run for state Legislature
Former state Rep. Lois McMahan has announced she will run again for a seat in the Washington House of Representatives, this time for the 26th District Position 2 seat currently held by Rep. Brock Jackley (D-Manchester).
McMahan, an Olalla Republican, represented the 26th District in the state legislature from 1996 to 1998, in Position 1. McMahan lost her re-election bid in 1998 to Pat Lantz, who still holds the Position 1 seat.
She ran again in 2000, seeking the Position 2 seat vacated by Republican Tom Huff, and won the GOP primary but was defeated in the general election by Jackley.
My husband and I have five children and four grandchildren, McMahan said. Were concerned about their future. Will it be safe, and will they have an opportunity to make a good life for themselves and the freedom to choose just what that good life will be?
McMahan will kick off her campaign with a pair of business breakfasts. The first will be in Gig Harbor at Canterwood Golf and Country Club on May 14 at 7 a.m. The second will be at Twetens Lighthouse Restaurant in Port Orchard at 7 a.m. on May 15.
Bob Williams, executive director of the Evergreen Freedom Foundation, will be the featured speaker for both events.
