Mike Steele

Representing the 12th District

It's an honor and privilege to represent the great people of North Central Washington. For more than 10 years I've served as the executive director for the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce, while also overseeing the company finances and payroll for our family's 112-year-old orchard business.

My legislative priorities include creating a more friendly business climate in 12th District and throughout the state. Our small businesses have a difficult time absorbing health insurance costs, burdensome regulations, and heavy B&O taxes. We need to do more to help employers sustain and create new jobs. It's also important that we strengthen our state's commitment to the tourism industry. Currently, we are the only state in the nation without a tourism agency. That needs to change.

I'm also committed to better policies for education, providing more health insurance options to create competition and prioritizing and the lowering costs of our transportation infrastructure.

As a state representative, it's my job to listen, help and be the voice for the people of the 12th District in Olympia. That's why your input is important. Please contact me if I can be of any assistance or if you have an idea or concern about a state government-related issue.
