Washington State House Democrats


Me and my Shadow (and his Dad!)

I had the great pleasure this session to spend some quality time with a couple of terrific 23rd-district constituents.  Wallace Ross (left) is an English teacher at Olympic High School in Bremerton, where his son, Cameron (center), is a freshman.  I was privileged to meet them when I donated a “Shadow Day” to Kitsap Montessori School, where Cameron’s younger sister is a student.  They won the auction, and Cameron was able to shadow me on a typical day at the Legislature.  He was also named honorary page, and sat beside me on the House floor as our chamber celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  I thank them both for visiting.  And remember, you don’t have to win an auction to visit the Capitol.  I’m always happy to welcome visitors from back home!
