Rep. Christine Kilduff in House Education Committee, Feb. 19, 2018.It’s an honor and a privilege to serve the people of the 28th District in the House of Representatives.

In the upcoming 2019 legislative session, I look forward to serving you and standing up for:

  • Middle class families by advocating for property tax cuts and ST3 tax cuts and well-paying jobs that provide economic security for all Washingtonians;
  • All Washington students by supporting better special education funding and addressing the statewide teacher shortage, as well as further expansion of college financial aid and tuition freezes;
  • Military families and veterans who make unprecedented sacrifices for our state and country and deserve our unequivocal support whether transitioning to civilian life or ensuring full access to services, including a renewed push to pass my legislation to promote military spouse employment;
  • Providing stability for families by ensuring mental health and health care services are available to everyone who needs them, as well as a comprehensive approach to addressing the opioid crisis that affects every community in Washington; and
  • Communities across Pierce County so they are safe, healthy and vibrant places in which to raise our families and work.

While working as an assistant attorney general, Christine Kilduff led a statewide team to tackle the problem of drunk drivers and as a civil prosecuting attorney also worked to take away weapons, money and vehicles used to commit crimes.

Christine has lived in University Place for the last 18 years and has been active in the community and organizations such as the PTA, Citizens for University Place Schools and various volunteer legal clinics. Christine and her spouse and partner of 25 years, Colleen, have two daughters who attend the University Place schools.
