Michael Baumgartner

Senator for the 6th Legislative District

Thank you for visiting my site!

I’m Michael Baumgartner, and it is because of you great people that I serve Spokane’s 6th Legislative District. I have called Eastern Washington home my whole life and that is why I fight for students, small businesses, and community members like you. My wife and I love raising our four kids here. Some of my fondest childhood memories involve running in Bloomsday, sledding at Manito Park, watching the Air Show at Fairchild and celebrating birthdays at the Shadle Chuck-E-Cheese.


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 in 2012.s
