Dear friends and neighbors,

With the start of the 2023 legislative session, I’m excited to reach out to you as your new state senator for the 36th Legislative District.
I’m honored by the opportunity to continue to serve the people of the 36th District and the entire state of Washington. I’ve never shied away from taking on the toughest issues and delivering real results for the people, and that’s what I intend to continue to do. Whether it’s expanding our supply of affordable housing, fixing our upside-down tax code, reforming our juvenile justice system, or any of the other challenges we’re facing in Washington, I’m excited to get to work.

Helping ensure every Washingtonian gets a chance to thrive, including having a great education, a home, and economic stability, is what motivated me to run for the Senate. This is the lens that I bring to my legislative work, and it’s what drives me to tackle the structural change we need across all of Washington state.

This year, I’ll be serving as the vice chair of the Senate Housing Committee, vice chair of the Senate Business, Financial Services, Gaming & Trade Committee, and as a member of the Senate Human Services Committee. We’ve already begun hearings and work sessions in these committees on some of the most important issues of the session, like expanding the supply of affordable housing and how we can improve our childcare and early learning support for kids across the state.

I’ve also started introducing legislation, and next week I’ll share an update with you on the bills that I’m bringing forward. In the meantime, you can reach me at with thoughts, questions, ideas, and feedback, and find out more on my website at

This year I’ll be working with my same legislative assistant from the House, Lyndea Kelleher. I deeply appreciate the hard work she does to keep the office running, assist constituents with questions about legislation or problems with state agencies, and all the behind-the-scenes things that it takes for me to do my job. You can contact her at

Town Hall This Weekend

Townhall announce details

I’m excited that one of the first acts I’ll get to do as your state senator is to host a town hall event with my seatmates in the House this coming Saturday, January 14th. This is a great opportunity for us to hear directly from you about the important issues facing our state – we’ll briefly be presenting about what our priorities for the 2023 session are, but most of the time will be devoted to Q&A so that you get as much time as possible to ask us about your concerns and for us to hear you.

When: Saturday, January 14th, 1-2 PM

Where: National Nordic Museum, 2655 NW Market St, Seattle, WA 98107

Who: Sen. Noel Frame, Rep. Julia Reed, Rep. Liz Berry, and hopefully you!

If this time and date doesn’t work for you, don’t worry – we will plan to have future town hall events, both virtual and in-person, so you’ll have more opportunities to talk with us. And as I mentioned above, if these events don’t work then you can still contact me at any time at

Applications for the Page Program Still Open

The Washington State Senate has one of the best Page programs in the country and applications are still open! This is an exciting program which allows many young Washingtonians to get a closer look at the civic process and learn firsthand about state government and the Legislature.

Pages are students sponsored by legislators who serve for one week during the legislative session. During that week, they spend time in Page School learning about the legislative process while also distributing materials throughout the Capitol campus, assisting legislators, working on the Senate floor, and presenting the colors at the opening of each day’s legislative session.

Three pages on the Senate floor

To be eligible to page, a student must be 14, 15 or 16 years old. Since the program was shut down over the last two years of mostly remote sessions, this year only students ages 17 and 18 may also apply. Scholarships are available for pages from families with financial need, and housing with host families local to Olympia is available.

This is a unique opportunity, and I encourage young people to get involved! Learn more and get instructions for applying here, or you can email our office at for any additional information. Applications close Feb. 13, 2023.

Thanks so much for reading, and I’m looking forward to keep in touch!

In service,

Sen. Noel Frame
