Liz Pike Announces Plans to Run for 18th District State Representative, Position 2
Liz Pike, former Camas City Council Member, has filed with the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission as a candidate for State Representative, District 18. This seat is currently held by Representative Ed Orcutt, who is now in the 20th District due to redistricting.
“I am running for State Representative because I want to help restore the public’s faith in state government. I am disappointed to lose Representative Orcutt as our district’s State Legislator. I have decided to run for his seat to try to maintain the strong representation and courage he has provided,” said Liz. “If we commit to the ideal of reducing burdensome regulations and onerous rules, and work to shrink the size of government by prioritizing spending, our State will, once again, become business friendly. What we desperately need is more private sector job growth. Our State cannot continue on its current path.”
Liz is a small business owner of Pike Advertising Agency since 1995. She is currently contracted to serve as Political Affairs Director for the political action committee of the Building Industry Association of Clark County.
Liz was raised on a dairy farm in Brush Prairie and has lived in the 18th District most of her life. She operates a small sustainable farm in Fern Prairie raising sheep, turkeys, chickens and grows fruits, vegetables and berries. Liz has two grown children.
