Born and raised in Berea, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, Peg graduated from Ohio University with a BS in teaching and Ohio State University with an MA in Student Personnel Administration and was recruited to Seattle University as a Resident Director in 1980. Her career took her briefly away from education to Rainer Bank in Operations, where she met her husband, Terry, of 34 years, a Seattle native. She then returned to academia as an Academic Advisor for the School of Nursing at the UW. Being blessed to be an at-home mom for 10 years, she returned to the working sector as a Special Needs Teacher in the Northshore School District for the next 16 years and continues working a respite provider. Currently retired, she had become increasingly interested in where WA and our country was headed! As a Christian, patriot, and a firm believer in the principles of our Founding Fathers, she became active in seeking change on a small scale in the WA area, as a PCO. She joined several conservative organizations including EWRC, SCRWC and Bothell/North King County Republican Women’s Clubs, worked on a local campaign and for the “Just Want Privacy” initiative. She remains encouraged by Margaret Mead’s quote, “that a small group of committed citizens can change the world” and in using this philosophy, we can indeed be a force to help Washington go Red!


First Vice President, Programs

Nola Fillbrook


Born and raised in Burbank, CA, Nola moved to WA state in the early 1990s for the cooler weather and beauty of the landscape. She has a BS degree in business administration/project management and has worked in manufacturing and software companies since high school. She is married, and has one daughter and three grandchildren, who are living in TX. Nola became intensely interested in local politics during Dino Rossi’s run for governor, and subsequently joined the Republican party, the ERWC, and became a precinct committee officer (PCO). She believes in living Biblical principles in all areas of life, standing for truth. Nola is glad for this opportunity to help raise local awareness about these principles, as codified by the U.S. Constitution.



Secretary

Peggy Ann Tuttle


Peggy has been a resident of Snohomish County for the past 48 years. She is the proud mother of 4 sons and 10 grandchildren! Who are the delight of her life! She enjoys the country life on her small sheep farm in Sultan, Washington. Peggy is the Director of Good Samaritan International a charity mission in Guatemala, where she has worked with the Mayan Indigenous people as a missionary for 25 years. She is an active member in her local church and has been a Bible study teacher and speaker. She has a strong background in administration ranging from serving on the Board of Directors for International charity organizations, facilitating U.S. medical and surgery teams to Central America, to developing Bible programs and distributing hundreds of thousands of children’s Bibles in Africa, India, and Central America. Peggy is a strong conservative Republican and campaigned for Ronald Reagan. However, her desire to be more involved serving her country began last year when she joined the Evergreen Republican Women’s Club after returning to the U.S. from Guatemala. Peggy said, “God’s grace has been bestowed upon America once again. This is a critical time in our country’s history for Christians throughout our nations to get involved! We can make a lasting difference in our nation’s future by letting our light shine in local, state, and national government.”

Jeannette Sumpter 

Board Advisor


Living in various parts of the Pacific Northwest with her husband of 42 years, Jeannette raised two sons, 17 years apart. She obtained a BS degree in manufacturing engineering from Oregon State University at the age of 50.  After losing her husband to cancer in 2007, she moved to Bothell to be close to her older son and his family. Her employer, Hewlett Packard, was making cuts at about the same time that Jeannette came to realize that her generation was passing massive debt on to her grandchildren. This led her to join a number of conservative organizations, among them the ERWC.   She is a PCO in the 44th Legislative District and has served as Snohomish County District Director for WFRW, Communications Chair for Snohomish County Republican Party, VP Membership and Treasurer for ERWC. When she is not trying to save the country, she loves spending time with her family, especially her grandson, now 13.
