Safer communities. Sustainable infrastructure. Real solutions.

I know we can succeed.

Hi, I’m
Carrie Hesch

We live in such an amazing place with so many strong communities that have served myself and my family well. I am passionate about ensuring these communities are resilient to what the future holds.

I work at the Washington Corrections Center for Women, and serve as an elected Director on the Key Peninsula Community Services Board, and I’m a proud member of the Teamsters Local 117. I am a survivor of domestic violence and am committed to ensuring families have the support resources they need. In Gig Harbor, I raised my two wonderful daughters, Helena and Reigna. Helena is a local city police officer and Reigna is a special needs community angel. They’re my heart.

I’m looking forward to the opportunity to learn more about you and to let you know more about myself, my family and my values.

Working together for stronger communities.

“Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” – Bruce Lee.

Right now, our resilient communities require leadership that is courageous, knowledgeable and willing to do the work. That is why I’m running for State Representative.

Service to our communities is at my core. I’ve dedicated time and effort to elected positions within the Teamsters Local 117 Union and within Key Peninsula Community Services in which I serve as Board Director. Both of these positions require a thorough understanding of advocacy and the ability to mitigate emergent situations across the table.

I went back to school to complete a Master’s degree in Infrastructure Planning & Management from the University of Washington (Go Huskies!) so that I would be well prepared to help lead our communities in planning and preparing for the impacts of time and climate change.

  • We must strengthen our transportation, healthcare, energy, food and water systems.
  • Repairing and updating our infrastructure is key to healthy, sustainable communities. These systems are fundamental to community resilience, create jobs and provide pathways to employment.
