On Saturday, June 23rd, the Iowa Democratic Party will hold our annual Hall of Fame Celebration with keynote speaker Governor Jay Inslee of Washington.

Under Governor Jay Inslee’s leadership, Washington state has been a beacon of progress for the nation, expanding access to voting rights, taking steps to reduce gun violence, providing paid sick and the best paid family leave policies in the nation and raising the minimum wage, all while having the strongest state economy in the nation, according to CNBC and Business Insider — a stark contrast to the dysfunction in the other Washington.

Governor Inslee also serves as the chair of the Democratic Governors Association.
