Republican Kevin Waters was officially sworn into office as a member of the Washington State House of Representatives, Monday, to serve the 17th Legislative District.

Waters was elected in November and takes the seat previously held by former Rep. Vicki Kraft, R-Vancouver.

“This is a humbling experience and an amazing opportunity to serve the people of the 17th District,” said Waters, R-Stevenson. “I can’t wait to get involved and work on positive solutions to our state’s biggest problems. I’m ready to hit the ground running.”

Waters will be a part of four committees as he takes office this biennium. He will serve on the House Capital Budget Committee, as well as the Innovation, Community Economic Development and Veterans Committee. Additionally, he will serve on the Postsecondary Education and Workforce Committee and the Regulated Substance and Gaming Committee.

“I love the state of Washington, but I’m concerned about the direction our state is going. I feel our current state government needs to listen to people from all corners of the state, and not just from the Puget Sound area,” said Waters. “These are challenging times for everyone. But we need to come together to find solutions that help all Washingtonians and move our state forward in the right direction.”

The 17th District covers parts of Clark and Skamania Counties. The legislative session began Jan. 9 and is scheduled to last for 105 consecutive days.
