Bob Dingethal Declares Candidacy for Washington’s 3rd Congressional District
Ridgefield – Businessman and non-profit leader, Bob Dingethal, announced his candidacy today for Congress in Washington’s 3rd Congressional District.
“The people of Southwest Washington deserve representation in Congress, leadership that works together and actively seeks solutions to our common problems.” said Dingethal. “Our Congress is dysfunctional. It’s time to put aside the partisan in-fighting that has caused the problems of struggling families to be ignored. The people need someone who will listen and work as hard as they do.”
Dingethal, who has announced as a Democrat, is currently the Executive Director of the Gifford Pinchot Task Force, a nonprofit organization that protects and restores the national forest around Mount St. Helens and Mt. Adams. A former Outreach Director for Senator Maria Cantwell in Southwest Washington, Dingethal was also an executive in the telecommunications industry for twenty years and has owned several small businesses in the region.
“I’m looking forward to meeting thousands of people face to face across the district in the coming months. I want to hear their concerns and ideas. We need to open the conversation to everyone. There are currently a lot of people who feel their voices are not being heard over the power of special interests in D.C.” said Dingethal.
