Representative Timm Ormsby was born and raised in the heart of Spokane. Like his 3rd-district constituents, Timm knows first-hand the value of hard work and the challenges facing working families. 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 Appropriations Subcommittee on Health and Human Services and, fittingly, 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.
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, SustainableWorks, and Spokane Neighborhood Action Programs, and 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 three grandchildren.
