Mona Das for
Commissioner of Public lands
I’m Mona Das.
I’m running to be your next Commissioner of Public Lands. Let me tell you why…here in Washington state we have over 5 million acres of public lands, and the Department of Natural Resources is the office that oversees the future of that land. As the head of this office, I will ensure we are using our state lands to fight climate change, protect Washington’s natural heritage for future generations, and to modernize state lands to ensure working forests provide a viable economy now and into the future.
Mona Das is a powerful force for environmental justice, racial equity, housing affordability, and economic fairness in Washington. Das’ family came to the U.S. when she was eight months old with only six dollars in their pockets, and her lived experience has driven her commitment to dismantling barriers for marginalized people in every aspect of her work and life.
“Senator Das cares deeply for our environment and for our Mother Earth. It is through her commitment to our humanity, our shared values, and our strongest alliance that I fully endorse her for Commissioner of Public Lands. She is a woman who has gained the respect of her peers and our community and deserves our support.”
"Senator Das has the heart of an environmentalist, the experience of a successful businesswoman, and the skills needed to bring together all Washingtonians to understand, cultivate, and nurture our public lands. As our next Commissioner of Public Lands, she'll do this for our people now, and for generations to come.”
Patty Kuderer, State Senator
“Serving with Mona Das in the State Senate, I was able to see the energy she brings to get things done for Washingtonians first hand. Together we helped pass some of the most environmentally conscious legislation in the nation, and I know her service will be a benefit to our state as Public Lands Commissioner.”
