We proudly serve the cities of Federal Way, Algona, Milton, and Pacific, as well as parts of the cities of Auburn and Des Moines and portions of unincorporated King and Pierce Counties.



Congrats to the 30th LD's new State Representative Jesse Johnson!

Rep. Johnson was appointed during a joint county council meeting on Monday, Jan 13. He has already joined Sen. Wilson and Rep. Pellicciotti in Olympia.

Prior to his appointment, Johnson sat before a joint session of the King and Pierce County Councils alongside fellow nominees Sam Rise and Jamila Taylor. Councilmembers from both counties and from both parties emphasized the strength of all three nominees. The 30th district is lucky to have such talented, thoughtful, and dedicated people willing to serve!

Three people were nominated to fill the legislative vacancy at a special meeting of the 30th LD Democrat PCOs. Congratulations to the nominees: Federal Way Councilmember Jesse Johnson, attorney and former city council candidate Jamila Taylor, and robotics teacher and community advocate Sam Rise (pictured here with WA State Democrats Chair Tina Podlodowksi).

One of these three nominees is expected to be selected to fill the legislative vacancy at a joint meeting of the Pierce and King County Councils on Jan 13th at 1:30pm at the Federal Way City Council Chambers.

Thank you Rep. Reeves for your exceptional leadership. We canít wait to see what you take on next!

Procedure for filling the vacancy:

The procedures for filling legislative vacancies are outlined by the State Constitution (Article II, Section 15) and the WA State Democratic Party. The WA State Democratic Chair will call a special caucus of the 30th LD PCOs for the purpose of filling this vacancy. At that meeting, a ranked list of three nominees will be produced. The list will then be presented to the Pierce and King County Councils who will appoint one of the individuals to fill the seat.
