Representative Joe Fitzgibbon, elected to represent Washington State’s 34th District in 2010, is the Chair of the House Environment Committee. He also sits on the Appropriations and Agriculture & Natural Resources committees and the Select Committee for Pension Policy. Prior to his election, Joe served as a legislative staffer and as the Chair of the Burien Planning Commission.
Joe ran for office because he believes that state government has the power to improve quality of life for all Washingtonians and to make our state’s economy more sustainable. He has worked for sustainability on many fronts, including expanding transit, making walking and bicycling safer, reducing Washington’s greenhouse gas emissions, restoring and protecting natural habitat, cleaning up Puget Sound, and improving Washington’s land use laws.
Joe believes Washington has both an opportunity and a responsibility to be an example to the rest of the world of a state with a thriving and a sustainable economy that protects our unique ecosystems, our air, and our water for generations to come.
Joe, who grew up in Burien and now lives in West Seattle, enjoys hiking, biking, traveling, reading, and playing with his dog, Stevie.
