Jesse Hegstrom Oakey - Washington State Representative for District 13 - DEM


 I look around the district and the state and I see issues to champion. On this side of the mountains, we pride ourselves on being a little bit different from the west side, and we’re starting to see more and more families coming here looking for a place to raise their kids in a safe neighborhood with a backyard. Unfortunately, this means that housing becomes more competitive, and families bring with them children who need space in our already crowded schools, so we’re going to have to find a way to attract quality teachers and shore up K-12 education without disproportionally passing the additional cost onto retirees who are already living on fixed incomes.

Feel free to send us your thoughts.
