November 9, 2018

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I am honored to serve you and look forward to returning to Olympia in the new year. The 2019 legislative session begins January 14 and is scheduled for 105 days. In addition to passing bills, my colleagues and I will approve state budgets for the next two years. To help with the workload of the session, our Olympia office is seeking a session aide to be part of our team, which includes me, my legislative assistant, communications staff, and office intern. The position begins January 7, 2019 and ends in late April 2019.

The session aide will assist our office by tracking legislation, scheduling appointments, organizing correspondence, answering incoming phone calls, and meeting with constituents. This position provides a great opportunity to serve our community and gain valuable work experience. The salary is approximately $2,700+/month. As a temporary position, it does not include benefits.

Attention to detail, strong organizational and writing skills, and working calmly under stress are key for this position. Applicants with a four-year college degree are preferred. Work is sometimes required of the session aide in the evenings and occasionally weekends. Our office greatly values the customer service we provide to you, so it is especially important to me that my session aide understands the importance of public service, values the diversity of our district, and maintains a positive attitude when interacting with those we serve.

If you or someone you know is interested in applying for this position, please email a cover letter and resume to no later than 1:00 p.m. on Monday, November 26, 2018. We anticipate interviews in the Wenatchee area December 13-14 with work beginning January 7. For questions, please contact my Legislative Assistant, Jack Grimm, at 360-786-7622.

Thank you again for the opportunity to serve as your 12th District state senator.
