I hope I can count on your support. Thank you.

Statement: My name is Mathew K.M. Tomaskin and I am running for the 14th Legislative District Position II. As a First American growing up in Central Washington my entire life, I've had a concern about equal and fair representation in our state government from elected officials. As a Veteran of the US Army, I gained lifelong skills in responsibility, honesty, and integrity. I used these traits to become an elected official for the Yakama Nation and currently I am their Legislative Affairs Liaison. I would like your support in building a smarter and more effective government for our citizens. Thank You.
