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 part 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.

My commitment in politics is very clear… it’s 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.
