Biography

Rep. Cindy Ryu represents the 137,000 citizens of the 32nd Legislative District, which includes NW Seattle, Shoreline, south Edmonds, Woodway, west Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood.

She is a 47-year resident of Washington State and lived previously in South Korea, Brunei, and the Philippines. A proud Husky, she has a Bachelor of Science in microbiology and an MBA in operations management from the University of Washington.

Ryu is serving her 4th term in the Washington State House.  While a Shoreline City Councilmember, she served as Mayor, becoming the first Korean American woman mayor in America. In Shoreline, she served as president of both the Shoreline Chamber of Commerce and its Dollars For Scholars Chapter. She helped create Shoreline’s Green Business Program.

In the House of Representatives, Ryu chairs the Community Development, Housing &Tribal Affairs Committee, with jurisdiction over Tourism, Veterans, and Community Resilience and Emergency Preparedness. Ryu also chairs the Members of Color Caucus and serves on Commerce & Gaming and Capital Budget committees.

Ryu is a strong advocate for the small business owner, public schools, public transportation, environmental and consumer protection and public safety. She seeks increased access to affordabole housing and home ownership and welcomes ideas for implementable solutions to make Washington a better place for us to live, work, and raise our families.

Over the years, she prime-sponsored bills and amendments that protect consumers, increase police accountability and protect our privacy, encourage economic revitalization, reform insurance and credit union laws, strengthen our human trafficking laws to discourage the modern version of slavery, allow air rescue and evacuation services and small business partnerships, and increase pedestrian and bicyclist safety with her 20-mph Neighborhood Safe Streets Bill.
