Ukiah Mayor Mary Anne Landis said, “Stacey Lawson is the candidate who can help us make more in Mendocino County. Along with her strong business background and great people skills, she’s energetic and focused on promoting sustainable solutions to issues we face around economic development. She’s just the woman we need to represent us in Washington.”
Lawson grew up in a rural community on the coast of Washington State. She watched her father start a small trucking business from a single truck he drove himself and lift their family into the middle class. A student of public schools who became a chemical engineer and then went on to graduate from Harvard Business School, Lawson has started small businesses, run major departments inside large companies and created hundreds of jobs.
“When I was young, we lived in a trailer, but my mom and dad dreamed of a better life for our family — they worked hard, they took risks and we all succeeded,” said Lawson. “I’m running for Congress because I believe in that dream for all American families.”
Lawson also co-founded and teaches at the Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology at UC Berkeley and started a company that created technology to help U.S. manufacturers compete in the global marketplace — and keep middle-class jobs in America.
Lawson has released a detailed middle-class jobs plan, available at www.StaceyLawson.com and Amazon.com: Making More in America: How Restoring America’s Manufacturing Strength Can Help Rebuild America’s Middle Class.
