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
