From Grassroots to Greatness: Championing Change, One County at a Time


Tacoma, WA May 29, 2024 — EL’ona Kearney’s inspiring 39-county tour across Eastern Washington, launched over Memorial Day weekend, is making significant strides as she has now completed visits to 28 counties. This is her second time touring the state. Her journey is a testament to her commitment to connecting with communities and understanding their needs firsthand.

During this tour, Kearney received a significant endorsement from former Florida State Representative Jimmie T. Smith. Smith, who was visiting Yakima, WA, has a longstanding relationship with Kearney and her family. Kearney and her children had the invaluable opportunity to intern under Smith, gaining firsthand experience that has profoundly shaped her vision and approach to public service. Reflecting on Kearney’s dedication, Smith stated, “I fully endorse EL’ona for governor because, out of all the people running for governor I have read about or looked up, EL’ona is the only one whose sole focus is to make Washington better for the people.”

As part of her campaign’s ongoing efforts to address critical issues facing the state, EL’ona Kearney for Governor is proud to announce the hosting of a groundbreaking press conference titled "Breaking the Silence: A Press Conference on Mental Health Policy & Community Action." This pivotal event will take place on Sunday, June 9, 2024, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM at Michael Okoro founded Limitless Apparel and Omni Sportswear. The press conference will spotlight Kearney’s commitment to mental health policy and her vision for community-driven action to address this pressing issue.
