My name is Dave Strider; I live with my wife in beautiful Tacoma, Washington. I am running as an Independent for US Senate in 2018  with a strong commitment for protecting the environment and keeping the Evergreen State evergreen.

I believe that our planet is facing a crisis and that cleaning up our soil, water, and skies is a group effort that we all need to contribute to, as individuals and as governments. I want to bring Washington’s values for a healthy environment to Washington D.C. and make sure our nation is working with the rest of the world to improve humanity’s impact on our planet. This is an issue that affects all of us and any efforts we put forth now, positive or negative, will be returned to us tenfold in the future. We should be doing all that we can to ensure that impact is positive.

I have grown up a fighter, experienced a life of hardships, and come out stronger on the other side. Now I want to fight for you to make sure our values are fully represented and to ensure the next generation is given the best of possible worlds to begin with.

My values include:


Health Care



Law Enforcement



Social Policies
