NEW! See results of my 2017 district survey! Click here.

Thanks for visiting my website!

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

As a member of the Majority Coalition Caucus, I am dedicated to bringing private sector jobs back to our community, improving education through funding and innovation, and passing a sustainable budget without raising taxes.

I want to thank all who have participated in my previous legislative surveys, and urge you to respond to this year’s questionnaire. 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 that the values and concerns of my district should be held above my own, and I will always hold that belief. No matter what the issue is, I follow your lead.

Tim Sheldon
