Representative Roger Goodman
- Celebrating progress – reforms that support victims!
This year at the BE LOUD Breakfast, we asked you to call your representatives in support of a bill that would amend the process of obtaining a Sexual Assault Protection Order (SAPO).
Your calls, emails, and persistence WORKED. On May 5, 2017 Governor Jay Inslee signed Senate Bill 5256 into law, creating equal protection for victims of sexual assault in the state of Washington.
Monday, with Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs (WCSAP) and joined by First Lady Trudi Inslee, we celebrated this historic reform. Progress like this could not happen without your support and action. Thank you.

Last Tuesday, Representative Roger Goodman’s Vulnerable Adult Bill (HB 1153) was passed by a unanimous vote. Rep. Goodman said he hopes the measure will result in giving “victims the justice they deserve, and making sure their abusers are held accountable for their crimes.”

“I can’t imagine the federal government using limited resources to try to bring down a new, regulated system that has worked so well,” said state Rep. Roger Goodman, D-Kirkland. “Prohibition was an unmitigated failure. The war on drugs is already winding down, and this administration will try to ramp it up again at its own peril.”
- Thank You!
Thanks SO much for helping me to secure my position in the State Legislature! Your support helped propel me to a SIXTH term, with more than 62% of the vote!
Our victory is somewhat bittersweet in view of the national election. However, you can count on me to keep standing up for children and families and for safe communities, and to keep working hard to preserve our high quality of life here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Please keep in touch with any questions or comments you may have. I want to remain accessible and responsive to your concerns. It’s an honor to represent you.
Thanks again for your support!
