23rd Legislative District Team
Sen. Christine Rolfes represents the 23rd Legislative District, which includes the Kitsap County communities of Hansville, Kingston, Poulsbo, Bainbridge Island, Keyport, Silverdale, and East Bremerton. Since her election to the state House of Representatives in 2006, Christine has become a leading voice on education funding and reform, small businesses, ferries, military-families and veterans, and the environment. Her efforts have yielded tangible results for the 23rd district and Washington State as a whole.
State Rep. Sherry Appleton, the senior member of the 23rd-district legislative team and a former two-term Poulsbo City Council member, has called Poulsbo home for three decades. She was elected to the Washington State House of Representatives in 2004, and currently serves on the House Local Government, Public Safety, and State Government & Tribal Relations committees, as well as the Joint Committee on Veterans’ and Military Affairs.
Drew Hansen has represented the 23rd Legislative District (most of Kitsap County) since 2011. He serves as Chair of the College and Workforce Development committee, and also serves on the Appropriations and Civil Rights & Judiciary committees.
