Candidate for
Washington House of Representatives, District 42b
Campaign website
Matthew Krogh was a 2012 Democratic candidate for District 42b of the Washington House of Representatives.


Campaign themes

Krogh's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Washington Jobs

  • Excerpt:"One of the reasons I’m running for office is to make sure state government works as hard for you as you do to pay for it. That means we need a Made in Washington purchasing policy to make sure that the taxes we send to Olympia come back to us as investment in infrastructure, and that our purchasing policies prefer businesses and products that are proudly made right here."


  • Excerpt:"I support a woman’s right to choose and support access to birth control."

Paths to Prosperity

  • Excerpt:"I know that there are good people working very hard to ensure that every child gets the support they need. It is time they got the same sort of commitment from their representatives in Olympia."

Protect Our Fisheries and Farms

  • Excerpt:"We need common-sense water policy that protects agriculture, fishing jobs, and drinking water. And we need strong leadership that ensures water supply for farmers and tribes–our farms and fisheries are both too important to waste time and money squabbling."
