The 5th Legislative District GOP chairman, Bob Brunjes, has been elected to a third term. Brunjes, a Snoqualmie resident, was elected Feb. 1 to lead the Republican stronghold in a mostly blue Western Washington.
The veteran activist and organizer oversees 182 precinct committee officers from Snoqualmie Pass to Sammamish to Maple Valley and part of Renton.
In recent years Democrats have made gains in traditionally conservative districts, but the 5th District has remained a firm bastion for the GOP. Across the state, Republicans regained some of those losses in last fall’s election.
“We still have plenty of work to do,” Brunjes said in a news release. “We need to get
Washington back on track with a sensible budget and no new taxes.”
Brunjes credited the 5th District GOP’s success in part to the support of volunteers. “I am very fortunate to work with such a wonderful group of dedicated citizen volunteers who contribute thousands of hours each year to disseminate voter information to their district neighbors.”
