Welcome

It’s an honor to work for my friends and neighbors in the heart of Spokane. The current legislative session is one of the most crucial in a generation or more, as we try to fashion a responsible and sustainable state budget that fully funds K-12 education — and begins to rebuild our tattered social safety net, which has been stretched to the breaking point since the onset of the Great Recession in 2008.

I’ll keep you posted on how we’re progressing. In the meantime, if you need information or have a legislative issue, always feel free to contact me with your requests and concerns and either I or my legislative aide will return your call, email, or letter promptly. You can also . . .

Please stay in touch.

Sincerely,

Biography

He is a cement mason by trade, and has been a member of the Operative Plasterers and Cement Masons International Association Local 72 since 1990. He is also a past president of Local 72, and has been the business representative for the Northeastern Washington – Northern Idaho Building & Construction Trades Council since 2000.

In Olympia, Timm serves as vice chair of the House Appropriations Committee – the panel charged with writing the House version of the state’s biennial operating budget. He’s also a member of the House Labor and Workforce Development Committee.

Timm served as vice chair of the House Capital Budget Committee for several years, developing the state’s construction budget. He is a special appointee to the State Investment Board and the Select Committee on Pension Policy, which he chaired in 2013-14, and is also a special appointee to the Washington State Investment Board.

In addition to his legislative duties, Timm is an active member of the Spokane community and is affiliated with numerous civic organizations. He is the current president of the Spokane Regional Labor Council and a board member of the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture, and Spokane Neighborhood Action Programs, and is a former board member of United Way of Spokane County and Rebuilding Together Spokane.

Timm, who has served his friends and neighbors with pride since coming to the Legislature in 2003, is married to Kim Ormsby and has three children and four grandchildren.
