Rep. Jenny Graham sworn in as state Representative

Graham takes oath of office on Bible of sister killed by the Green River Serial Killer

Spokane Republican Jenny Graham took her oath of office at the state Capitol today as part of the incoming crop of newly-elected Washington state legislators.

Graham, representing the 6th Legislative District, took part in official ceremonies, attended committee hearings and held office meetings.

“It is an honor to serve my constituents in the 6th Legislative District and the residents of Washington in the state legislature,” said Graham, R-Spokane. “I am ready to hit the ground running and will work hard to continue earning their trust and support.”

Graham will serve as the assistant ranking member on the House College and Workforce Development Committee. She will also serve on the Public Safety Committee and the Civil Rights and Judiciary Committee.

As a survivor of abuse, and the sister of a murder victim of the Green River Serial Killer, Graham said she is ready to put the experiences she's been through to the test as she focuses much of her initial energy on keeping the public safe.

“I think anyone who walks these halls for the first time and sees the magnitude of what goes on here is going to be a little bit intimidated at first,” said Graham. “But I've already been here. I've already walked these halls as an advocate for change; as someone who was trying to change the law to help child rape survivors. That experience has helped prepare me for this next challenge as I work with my fellow legislators to help keep the public safe and to make sure there are swift and strict punishments for the worst offenders.”

Graham can be reached in her Olympia office at (360) 786-7962, or via email at Jenny.Graham@leg.wa.gov. Her mailing address is Rep. Jenny Graham, P.O. Box 40600, Olympia, WA 98504-0600 and her website is: RepresentativeJennyGraham.com

The 2019 legislative session begins today, Jan. 14, and is scheduled to last 105 days.
