Thank you for visiting! Please contact me with any questions.

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.
