Inslee statement on retirement of Congressman Denny Heck

Story Body

"I just spoke to Denny and thanked him for his tireless advocacy on behalf of the people of the 10th Congressional District. No one is more dedicated to serving this region than Denny. Without fail, anytime I attend an event in his district, Denny is there. His dedication and energy are unmatched and he will be missed.

“Denny has fought hard for a strong democracy, been a powerful voice at the national level and is never afraid to do what’s right. Here at home, Washingtonians will benefit for generations from his remarkable leadership on recovering the Puget Sound, reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank and so many other issues.

“No matter what he does next, one thing is for sure – the Congressional Record will be shorter without him.

“I wish Denny the very best in his retirement and hope he has the opportunity to spend more time in the real Washington, enjoying the people and places he’s fought so hard for in Thurston, Pierce and Mason Counties."
