“We believe electing Maroon to the House would be good for Walla Walla, the district and the state. Maroon would be a passionate advocate in the Legislature. We envision him schooling his colleagues in the Democratic caucus on the views and needs of Eastern Washington. Maroon, whose politics are left of center, strikes us as a consensus builder.” —Union-Bulletin Editorial, October 8, 2018
“Maroon’s knowledge and experience with the challenges surrounding health care, mental illness, substance abuse and health insurance would be invaluable in the Legislature.” —Tri-City Herald Editorial, October 3, 2018

“I’m running for state representative because in the last ten years I’ve grown to love our region and I’ve seen time and again our needs overlooked. Even though we’re smaller than the urban centers around our state, we contribute a lot to the state economy and we deserve to have solutions that include our people and our needs. If elected I will bring my strong work ethic to the legislature, focusing on improving our healthcare systems and making our infrastructure stronger and more supportive of our commerce needs. I am ready to reach across the aisle to get work done for our communities and I will always be available to listen and respond to constituents.”
