Washington State House Democrats


Rep. Phyllis Gutiérrez Kenney released the following statement on the passing of fellow lawmaker and seatmate, Senator Scott White

“It is a sad day for members of the 46th District and Washington State due to the sudden demise of Senator Scott White.

 We are deeply saddened by his passing at the prime of his career.  He will be remembered as a state legislator and community leader for his commitment and work toward quality education for all children, affordable housing, healthcare, a safe environment, transportation, and many other issues important to the constituents in the 46th district.

He was willing to go the extra mile to find solutions to some very tough issues.  His desire was to create a better place for our families and our children to prosper.  In all his work, Scott never forgot, or let others forget, what the values of the Democratic Party brought to our communities.

While Scott was devoted to public service, his pride and love for his family was at the top of his priorities.

My family extends our love, thoughts, and prayers to Alison, their children and the entire White family.”
