It’s an honor and a privilege to serve the people of the 28th District in the House of Representatives.

This 2017 Legislative session I look forward to serving you and standing up for:

  • Our children and grandchildren by strengthening our education system so every child in our great state has a fair shot at the American Dream;
  • Military families 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;
  • The middle class so well-paying jobs and economic opportunity are available to all Washingtonians and not just the wealthy few; and
  • Communities across the 28th so they are safe, healthy and vibrant places in which to raise our families and work.

Biography

Christine is the granddaughter of Irish immigrants who arrived in the United States with little education or savings. Her upbringing made her a strong believer in the power of education to give people a shot at the American Dream.

She double-majored in Spanish and Italian literature at Boston College, graduating summa cum laude and with Phi Beta Kappa honors before attending the Boston College Law School.

While working 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. She is the former president of the University Place School Board, named the State Board of the Year in 2014.

In the House of Representatives, she serves as vice-chair of the Judiciary Committee, along with serving on the Education Committee and Early Learning and Human Services Committee. She also serves on the Joint Legislative Audit & Review Committee and the Veterans’ and Military Affairs Joint Committee.
