New legislator busy in 18th District and assigned committees

State Rep. Brandon Vick, R-Felida, was sworn-in just 10 days ago and has already been assigned to committees, held several meetings around the 18th District, and been principal for a day.

The freshman legislator recently learned he will be serving on the House Finance Committee and Technology and Economic Development Committees. He will also be the assistant ranking Republican on the Business and Financial Services Committee.

“I've spent years running our family business, and because of that, I bring a real-life perspective to these committees. I'm thrilled to become a member of committees that can help get our friends and neighbors back to work. Being appointed a leadership position on the Business and Financial Services Committee is especially gratifying. That committee is tasked with considering licensing and regulation, which is something I've experienced first-hand. Our state can do better for its citizens and I'm excited to bring new ideas to the table,” Vick said. vick_principle

While out and about in the district, Vick met with many constituents and Clark County officials, talked with two Camas school teachers, conducted a legislative briefing with Partners in Careers (a non-profit job training and placement service), and participated in a Chamber of Commerce Legislative Outlook Forum.  The hectic pace didn't stop there. Vick also toured the Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital and served as principal for a day. Being the guest principal at Legacy High School was a highlight for Vick. He carried out the typical daily duties of the position, then met with Evergreen Public School's Superintendent John Deeder.

“I'm thankful that Michele DeShaw allowed me to come and take her job for a day. Good things are happening in Evergreen Public Schools and they are role models for how to help kids succeed. It was a fun and eye-opening experience,” Vick said.

Vick will be joining his fellow legislators in Olympia starting Monday, Jan. 14. The session is scheduled for 105 days. Vick can be reached at his Olympia office at (360) 786-7850 or via e-mail at brandon.vick@leg.wa.gov. Other details about Vick can be found on his website: houserepublicans.wa.gov/vick.
