Senator Steve Hobbs has been a member of the Washington State Senate since 2006. He serves as the top Democrat on the Transportation Committee and also serves on the Financial Institutions & Insurance Committee as well as the Agriculture, Water & Rural Economic Development Committee.

In addition to representing the people of the 44th district, he is a member of the Washington Army National Guard and proudly served in Kosovo and Iraq.

Based on strong input from his constituents, Senator Hobbs has adopted an expansive policy agenda which includes promoting local job creation through helping small businesses and improving our transportation infrastructure ; promoting legislation that holds state government accountable for the dollars we spend; and working with the community to create new and innovative approaches to strengthening our education system. He is particularly focused on expanding programs in our high schools and colleges that will prepare our students for the growing demand in the high-tech industries both at home and globally.

Steve also continues to advocate for our service members and their families in Washington State by drafting policies that recognize the complex needs of the men and women serving in our military. Steve has worked with service members across our state to develop useful legislation to service members and their families ranging from help in education, finding good family wage jobs, and protecting veterans’ rights since his time in the Senate.

Steve is a proud husband and father. He’s been married to his wife Pam since 1995 and together they are raising three boys: Gavin, Truman, and Winston all of whom attend public schools.

Raised in a working class family, Steve was taught to value education and hard work. In 2011, he received a Master’s of Public Administration from the University of Washington Evans School. In 1994 he earned a bachelor’s degree in political science at the University of Washington. He also holds an associate’s degree from Everett Community College.
