HeadshotThank you for taking the time to visit my website and learn more about my 2022 re-election campaign for the Washington State House of Representatives, which I held from 2013-17.

As an officer in the U.S. Navy, I pledged to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic…and I am still delivering on that promise today. I see challenges to our cherished way of life in unsustainable government spending, the decline of our schools, the over-regulation of our businesses, and everyday erosion of our constitutional rights.

During my career at Microsoft, I personally represented the company to U.S. senators and congressional staff, state attorneys general, hundreds of Fortune 500 CEOs, and thousands of industry insiders. As president of the Issaquah School Board, I represented the school district’s 17,831 students and 59,358 voters and supervised its $294 million annual budget.

For two terms after that I represented the 5th Legislative District as ranking Republican on the House Education Committee and a lead negotiator for the McCleary remedy, which resulted in the State increasing its K-12 funding over 8 years by 105% while also easing the tax burden on 44% of districts by reducing net school levy rates. I was also prime sponsor of the Washington Cybercrime Act in 2016, which gave local law enforcement the tools needed to prosecute and extradite online criminals. For more details on my extensive policy work, check out The Magendanz Minute.

Please allow me the opportunity to continue to support and defend your interests in Olympia.

Why am I running?

Where is the 5th LD?
