Why we are running

We are facing challenging and unprecedented times as we work to end this pandemic and get lives back to normal. This crisis has shown too many people live paycheck to paycheck with many of our residents not being able to afford their mortgage or rent after only a few weeks of an economic shutdown.

This is an opportunity to reset our economy to ensure more living wage jobs, more affordable housing, better access to health care and a stronger safety net for our most vulnerable. To do this, we have to forgo the trend toward divisive, partisan politics and unite our county in rebuilding our economy by recruiting great companies that pay living wages, quickly building new housing for working families, strengthening our human services programs and continuing to protect our natural resources for future generations.

"...knows about the paycheck-to-paycheck struggles of folks in her district, in part from her service on Tacoma’s Human Rights Commission and on the Associated Ministries board. Cultivating public-private partnerships is what she does best, and that skill could help the county address escalating rents and home ownership disparities.

A former city planner for Kent, Rumbaugh will pump the brakes on any growth-management plan that doesn’t include infrastructure and affordable housing. And her master’s degree in environmental studies gives her knowledge, not just passion, to address regional concerns over greenhouse gas emissions."

Hi, I'm Sarah​.

I decided to run for this office because my values fit my district. I believe in serving families first, maintaining quality of life, investing additional resources into behavioral health, and preserving agricultural lands in Puyallup Valley. It is critically important to address the homelessness and affordable housing crisis in Pierce County.
