Rep. Javier Valdez, D-46
By Evan Smith

Newly appointed 46th District State Rep. Javier Valdez has joined the Education, Judiciary and Transportation committees in the State House of Representatives.

  • The House Education Committee considers issues relating to kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12) education.
  • The House Judiciary Committee considers a wide variety of subjects relating to civil and criminal law, including issues involving commercial law, torts, probate, guardianships, civil commitment, firearms, eminent domain, landlord/tenant law, Consumer Protection Act remedies and processes, and courts and judicial administration; as well as family law issues such as marriage, marriage dissolution, child support and adoption.
  • The House Transportation Committee considers the transportation budget, revenue sources for transportation funding, and issues relating to transportation policy and transportation agencies, including the Department of Transportation and the Washington State Patrol.

Valdez recently won appointment to the legislative seat that former State Rep. Jessyn Farrell gave up in early June to pursue her campaign for mayor.

Valdez will hold the House seat through the 2018 general election. The position would have been on 2017 ballots if it had become vacant before the concert May filling week.

The 46th District includes Lake Forest Park, Kenmore and northeast Seattle.
