Voters have a clear choice for their 49th District senator. One candidate has zero legislative experience, and Eileen Qutub has six years in Oregon where she skyrocketed to leadership in the Legislature as majority whip. Her history of service and awards from the Council of State Governments and the National Federation of Independent Businesses attest to her superior capabilities. The Council of State Governments chooses 40 individuals nationwide for this honor, so her selection is no small feat. A Battle Ground High School graduate with local family roots plus her experience make her the logical choice.
