Thanks for visiting my website!

NEW! 2019 legislative survey results are here. Thanks to all who participated!

I’m Tim Sheldon, your Democratic senator from the 35th Legislative District. My district includes Mason County and portions of Kitsap and Thurston counties.

I am the longest-serving member of the Washington Legislature, having first been elected in 1990. That makes me one of the last remaining Democrats to represent a rural district. I remain an independent voice for our rural values — fiscal responsibility, job creation, Second-Amendment rights and a minimum of government interference in our lives.

I am dedicated to bringing private sector jobs back to our communities, improving our schools, and passing sustainable budgets that do not require tax increases. I want to thank all who have participated in my annual legislative surveys. You can see the latest results here. You have made it clear you believe as I do, that fiscal responsibility must be maintained even at a time when the state’s finances are improving.

My commitment in politics is very clear… it’s to YOU. I have always believed the interests of my district are more important than the interests of any political party, and I will always hold that belief. No matter what the issue is, I follow your lead.

Tim Sheldon
