[Federal Way, WA - July 5, 2022] - El'ona Kearney, an Army veteran, wife of a union worker, and entrepreneur, is set to announce her candidacy for Washington State Governor. The press conference will take place on Sunday, July 10, 2022, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm at Black Bear Diner, located at 32065 Pacific Highway S, Federal Way, WA 98003.

Having filed her declaration of candidacy on May 26, Kearney's decision to run stems from a deep commitment to unity, community, and support. Her campaign represents a bid to address the pressing issues faced by underserved communities, drawing from her own lived experiences.

With a background that includes personal battles with homelessness, depression in middle school, and single parenthood, Kearney brings a unique perspective to the gubernatorial race. Her journey of resilience and determination positions her as a voice for those who feel unheard by the current political establishment.

"Washington State is at a critical juncture," Kearney asserts. "Rising taxes threaten to push the middle and lower classes into homelessness. We need a government that listens and responds to the needs of all its citizens. That's why I'm stepping up to run for governor."

Kearney's candidacy is fueled by a belief in the power of collective action and inclusivity. Her campaign tagline, "I'm not running, we are," underscores her commitment to bringing diverse voices to the table and creating a government that truly represents the people.

"I'm facing the same struggles as many of my fellow neighbors," Kearney explains. "I know firsthand the challenges of making ends meet and feeling unheard by those in power. It's time for a change."

As a military veteran, Kearney brings unique insights into issues of national security, defense policy, and veterans' affairs. Her entrepreneurial background demonstrates her ability to innovate and find practical solutions to complex problems.

The press conference on July 10 will provide an opportunity for Kearney to outline her vision for Washington State and collaborate with the community. Members of the press, community leaders, and concerned citizens are invited to attend and learn more about Kearney's platform and priorities.
