Fiscal Responsibility | Jobs Growth | Quality Education

Dear Friends,

Eight years ago when I returned from Iraq and Afghanistan you gave me the great privilege of serving as your State Senator. Today I'm writing to inform you that it’s time for a new challenge. I will not be returning to the Senate, but instead will be running for Spokane County Treasurer (R) back home. While I’ll miss the Senate, you can count on me to continue to be politically active and to fight for the same conservative principles of fiscal responsibility, jobs growth and quality education.

Please consider donating $500, $100 or even $50 today.


Sen. Michael Baumgartner’s ‘Top 10’ from 8 yrs in Olympia

I’ve been asked by a few people to list my favorite moments the State Senate that I played a prominent role in. Here’s what I came up with:


Creating Jobs for Spokane

A good job and the ability to start your own business are at the heart of the American Dream.


Ensuring Quality Education

A quality education system is the key to a strong America, from excellence in our K-12 systems to our world-renowned colleges and universities. As the son of two educators and father of four children, I understand just how important education is for the future.


Creating Responsible Budgets

We owe it to our children and grandchildren to create balanced budgets and reduce our debt. As your Senator, I helped pass into law our state’s first balanced budget requirement.
