Serving you in the Washington State Senate!
Welcome to my webpage! I’m Chris Gildon, your senator from Washington’s 25th Legislative District.
We live in one of the loveliest parts of the state, in the shadow of Mount Rainier, where we enjoy big-city amenities and suburban living. I am proud to call it home, and I am honored to represent you in Olympia.
As deputy leader of the Senate Republican Caucus and our assistant lead on the state operating budget, I am involved in the Legislature’s biggest debates. Top issues include public safety, keeping Washington affordable, and practical approaches to homelessness, drug addiction, and our social safety net. By building consensus within the Legislature, and putting pragmatism ahead of partisanship, we can get the job done.
