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

Here you will find my newsletters, news releases, opinion-editorials, video updates, and more. There will be many difficult decisions to make in this sessions. At the same time, the budget situation should not overshadow our state’s single largest need: jobs. I’ve said it before, and it is well worth repeating: There is much the Legislature can and should do to encourage job growth, because jobs are not only good for families, they’re the best remedy for our state’s budget trouble. I always enjoy communicating with my constituents about the issues that are important to you, so please don’t hesitate to call, write or e-mail me using the contact information below. It continues to be an honor to serve you in the Washington State Senate. Sincerely, Jim Honeyford 15th District State Senator
