Gerry is a UW School of Public Health faculty member and is widely recognized as one of our State’s leading voices to ensure Washington sets COVID policy based on science and public health principles. 

Gerry is a public interest lawyer (UW Law School), who started and directs the region’s largest citizens’ group, Heart of America Northwest, working for the cleanup of the nation’s most contaminated area, the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. He wrote and led the state ballot initiatives that stopped the federal government from using Hanford as a national radioactive waste dump and has worked to combat climate change for over 20 years. 

Gerry serves on the board of the Washington Coalition for Open Government and is the Legislature’s leading advocate for openness.

Gerry has an unsurpassed record of leadership and achievement for the 46th District and all Washington.
