I was honored to be selected to give the GOP 2019 response to Governor Inslee's State of the State Address. I hope you take a moment and watch as I outline what we Republicans are fighting for in Washington State.
Washington State House Republican Floor Leader Jacquelin Maycumber lives in the town of Republic representing the 7th Legislative District. She has a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and spent time working as a Biomedical Research Scientist. She is also a former law enforcement officer and elected School Board Member. Jacquelin has earned many honors including this year being named the State House Republican Floor Leader (becoming the first woman to hold the position since 1983).
Jacquelin was selected to give the Republican response to Governor Inslee’s “State of the State” Address (see video above). She was also named “Legislator of the Year” by the Washington Hunters Association and Was awarded “Legislator of the Year” by the Washington Council of Metropolitan Police and Sheriffs.

As a fourth-generation landowner in Northeast Washington, I have deep roots in the 7th District. My husband, Marty, and I live in Republic with our three children.
I was appointed to the 7th District seat in 2017 by county commissioners from five counties. I replaced former Rep. Shelly Short, who was appointed to the state Senate.
Our district includes Ferry, Pend Oreille and Stevens counties and parts of Okanogan and Spokane counties.
I have a passion for rural economic development, common-sense solutions to education funding and state budgeting, and for utilizing our abundant natural resources.
I earned a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and spent time as a biomedical research scientist. I am a former law enforcement officer and elected school board member, and have volunteered with the Chamber of Commerce.
I have served the people of the 7th District for the past nine years. First as Representative Shelly Short's Legislative Aide and then as your appointed Representative when Shelly moved to the Senate.
