Dear Friends and Neighbors,

SR520bcreditWSDOTI hope you had the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful summer weather with friends and family. There is no place prettier than the Pacific Northwest on a sunny, warm day. After the Legislature adjourned in late June, I have taken time to spend with my wife and children, catch up on things at my job and visit with constituents around the district.

I truly appreciate your feedback and hope you can join me and my seatmate in the state House of Representatives, Jay Rodne, at our informational transportation meeting this week. Or, mark your calendars to attend one of our 5th District town hall meetings. All of the information on these events is below.

If you are unable to participate in the meetings, please feel free to e-mail me or call my office with your questions, comments and ideas. My door is always open and I look forward to hearing your thoughts about what is important to you and your family.

Transportation meeting in Issaquah September 26

I hope you can join Jay and I, along with local transportation leaders for an informational meeting on transportation issues, including a possible tax package for road projects, this week. The goal of the meeting is to empower citizens to ask questions about what may be proposed in a transportation tax package the governor has said may come forward for a vote in a special session during the November 21 and 22 scheduled legislative committee days. The details of the meeting are as follows:

Thursday, Sept. 26, 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
Issaquah City Hall, Eagle Room
130 East Sunset Way


  • Kathy Lambert – member, King County Council, ETP representative
  • Fred Butler – Issaquah City Council President, ETP representative, RTC representative, ST Capital Committee chair, ST Audit and Reporting Committee
  • Ken Hearing – North Bend mayor, ETP Alternate
  • Dick Paylor – Immediate Past Chair of Chamber Coalition, former chair of ETA, former member Bothell City Council
  • Mark Mullet – 5th Legislative District state senator, Senate Transportation Committee member
  • Jay Rodne – 5th Legislative District state representative, House Transportation Committee member
  • Chad Magendanz – 5th Legislative District state representative

ETP = Eastside Transportation Partnership

Bring your questions and suggestions – we look forward to seeing you there!

Share your thoughts at a local town hall meeting

As many of you may know not only is this my first term serving as one of your state representatives in the 5th Legislative District, but the boundaries of the district were redrawn due to updated United States Census data. We kept a lot of the original district, but also gained some new areas, such as part of Enumclaw. As committee days in the Legislature and the 2014 legislative session approach, I hope you will take some time to join us at one (or several) of the town hall meetings we are hosting in October to share your thoughts.
