Representative Joe Fitzgibbon was elected to represent Washington State’s 34th District in 2010. Prior to his election, Joe served as a legislative staffer in state and local government and as the Chair of the Burien Planning Commission.

As a state representative, Joe serves as the Chair of the Environment Committee. He also serves on the Appropriations and Agriculture & Natural Resources committees.

Joe has worked to expand transit, and to make walking and bicycling safer. He has successfully passed into law environmental reforms that improve the functioning of those laws without compromising environmental protections.

He has strongly advocated for cleaning up Puget Sound, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting and improving Washington’s land use laws, and expanding access to the electoral process for historically disenfranchised populations like low-income people and youth.
