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.
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 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. You can see the results of this year’s survey here.
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.
Those who receive my regular e-newsletters have access to inside information straight from the state capital, often before members of the media have a chance to report it. Sign up today, and you can take the next step toward participating directly in your state government.
I'm here to serve you
A representative government only works when those represented take an active part in the process. I'm here to serve you, and your direct input helps me do my job better.
