The 7th Congressional District General Election Debate

October 13 at 6:00 p.m.

October 13, 2016

This year the residents of the 7th Congressional District will vote to replace Representative Jim McDermott, who has held his seat since 1989. This will be a hotly contested race between Pramila Jayapal and Brady Walkinshaw, and one which will have a lasting impact on our region.


Pramila Jayapal is a member of the Washington State Senate representing the 37th District. She was elected to the post in 2014 and is the only woman of color in the state senate. Previously, she was the founder and director of OneAmerica, an immigration advocacy organization.

Brady Piñero Walkinshaw represents the 43rd legislative district in the Washington State House of Representatives. He was appointed to the office in 2013 and then elected in 2014. He is a former Gates Foundation program officer and founded a non-profit in Honduras while there as a Fulbright scholar.
