Rep. Maureen Walsh, R-Walla Walla.

Thanks for visiting my Web site. It’s a great honor to serve the people of the beautiful 16th District. I spend a lot of time listening to constituents about the needs of our communities. This important feedback helps me refine my priorities as your state senator, including:

  • Creating and preserving jobs;
  • Working to help empower parents to be their kids’ first teachers and making sure all kids are prepared and excited about entering kindergarten;
  • Addressing agricultural needs and concerns;
  • Making health care more affordable and accessible;
  • Preparing students for our diverse economy; and
  • Responsible state budgeting that cares for our senior citizens and the most vulnerable.

I hope you’ll use my Web site as a resource to finding out more about the work I do in Olympia and ways you can contact me. Click on “sponsored bills” to learn more about the bills I have sponsored or co-sponsored. Please sign up for my e-newsletter to receive periodic updates on legislative and statewide issues.

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