“Trudeau’s life story and experience made her a perfect fit for a senator representing the 27th Legislative District,” he continued. “We look forward to her joining the Pierce County delegation.”

Trudeau will fill the seat vacated by longtime Democratic Sen. Jeannie Darneille who announced in September she was taking a new position with the state Department of Corrections.
