Rep. Mary Dye begins work in Olympia after being sworn in as 9th District state representative

Rep. Mary Dye, R-Pomeroy, spent her first day in Olympia Monday after being sworn in as the 9th District's newest state representative on Friday. Dye was chosen by 13 of 17 commissioners from the district's six counties to fill the seat left open by the resignation of Susan Fagan earlier this month.

Dye has lived in the 9th district most of her life, where she operates a 3,000-acre wheat farm with her husband, Roger. The Dyes also tend to 3,000 sheep on their farm.

“I am very honored and humbled to have the opportunity to serve the people of the 9th District,” said Dye. “I want everyone in the district to know I'm here to serve them, and will be working hard every day to make sure their voices are heard. I'm getting up to speed as quickly as possible, and look forward to meeting and working with my colleagues in the Legislature to find solutions to the many challenges facing our state.”

Dye's committee assignments will be determined in the next few days.

Rep. Dye can be reached at her legislative office by calling (360) 786-7942 or emailing mary.dye@leg.wa.gov. Letters can be sent to her office at: P.O. Box 40600, Olympia, WA 98504. Constituents who would like to meet with Dye are encouraged to call in advance and schedule a mutually-agreeable time. Her legislative aide is Shelby Pelon.

The 9th Legislative District includes all of Adams, Asotin, Franklin, Garfield and Whitman counties, as well as parts of Spokane County.
