Rooted in Tradition. Ready for Tomorrow.

J. Graham Ralston is a 5th generation son of Clallam County. His great-great grandfather John M. Ralston was the first judge of Clallam County.

Graham has 7+ years of senior federal experience in Washington, DC, and was the youngest senior executive leading a national small business program. He is a local business owner (Ralston Law), a licensed attorney/CPA, and is the only candidate with the necessary DC experience and network to bring immediate value to the district.

"There is nothing bold about running as a democrat or republican and expecting change. Our district will be on the map this presidential cycle as the bellwether of the nation. We can send a message that we are tired of party politics by voting independent." - J. Graham Ralston

Why am I running?

Port Angeles is not the same, and I care.

This is even more obvious after working for the U.S. Department of Transportation in Washington, DC from 2010–2018 and then returning home. While the beauty in both nature and people remain, there are problems in the WA-06 like many other cities and towns across the country.

We should be supporting our small businesses that were shut down during COVID and now face more economic uncertainty with inflation. We need to restore order in our communities that are impacted by theft, opioids, and homelessness.

I'm running as an Independent to serve the people – not political parties or corporations.

We, the people, can fix this together!

If you want real change in our politics, you should vote for me. You will not see change with traditional party politics.

Independents are the largest voting block in America at 43%. Washington State is a top 2 primary -- meaning the top candidates receiving votes will move on to the general election in November.

Fighting inflation and taxes

Inflation is an additional tax that you're being forced to pay. Standard items for living are up over 20% in the last two years. I will tackle inflation head-on and fight for tax relief that energizes our economy and puts money back in your pocket.

Jobs and economy

I have experience as a current small business owner and I led the U.S. Department of Transportation's small business office for over 7 years. My hands on experience and knowledge of government benefits and programs provides a unique advantage over other candidates to deliver value to the people and businesses of the 6th district.


Affordable, accessible healthcare is a right, not a privilege. I will work tirelessly to lower healthcare costs, expand coverage options, and improve the quality of care for all residents of the 6th district. Together, we can ensure that no one has to choose between their health and their financial security. When we remove corruption from DC, we can get sensible policies in place for healthcare.

Supporting first responders

My community is not the same as when I grew up. The rise of opioid use, the non-enforcement of store theft, and the lack of government strategy around homelessness and mental health issues place a serious strain on the safety and economics of small communities. We need to support first responders with the resources they need.


We must strengthen our borders to prevent illegal immigration for the safety and financial security of all Americans. Immigration must be done legally and through frameworks already established by our representatives.

Term limits

Tired of our politicians being sold to the highest bidder or working for their party, instead of you? To bring new ideas and energy to Congress, I staunchly support a six-year term limit for all representatives. This commitment to term limits is about fostering accountability and preventing the entrenchment of power.
