The Washington Food Industry Association (WFIA) has endorsed Larry Hoff for State Representative in the 18th Legislative district.
Jan Gee, President & CEO of WFIA in a letter to Hoff said, “You have shown concern for, and support of , the independent, privately held grocery industry, its local owners ant their employees… We look forward to working with you on important issues facing our state and members.”
“I was 13 years old when I landed my first real job. It was in a small town independent grocery store. That experience helped form the set of work ethics I hold as vital to this day. For that reason, receiving the endorsement from the Washington Food Industry Association (WFIA) is special indeed. The WFIA is the only state based grocery association and one of the oldest associations in Washington. They pledge to be an advocate for independent grocers and, in a small connected way, I’ve been a fan of theirs since I was 13 years old.“, said Hoff in reaction to the endorsement.
