Rep. Drew MacEwen sworn in to office for second term

Rep. Drew MacEwen, R-Union, took the oath of office today to begin his second term in the state House of Representatives. The galleries were full of friends and family who gathered to watch the opening ceremonies.

“I am honored to return to Olympia and be a voice for the people of the 35th Legislative District,” said MacEwen, R-Union. “I am excited to work on the issues facing our state, including funding education first, and passing a balanced, sustainable budget without raising taxes. The next 105 days will present challenges, but also opportunities to work in a bipartisan manner to solve problems for all Washingtonians.”

MacEwen will serve as the ranking member on the newly formed General Government and Information Technology Committee. He will also serve on the Appropriations Committee, which writes the biennial operating budget for the state.

“I am grateful to House Republican Caucus leaders for entrusting me with this responsibility in just my second term,” MacEwen said. “I look forward to working towards a sustainable operating budget that prioritizes state spending and does not raise taxes.”

The 2015 legislative session is scheduled to last 105 days. Rep. MacEwen can be reached at his office in 434 John L. O'Brien Building of the Capitol Campus or via email at drew.macewen@leg.wa.gov.
