Welcome to my legislative website. I am honored to serve as one of your 31st District state representatives.

Washington is a strong and vibrant state, but we are facing many challenges. I believe these challenges can be met, but we have tough work ahead of us. My legislative priorities focus around responsible state budgeting, reining in the power of the executive branch, fighting for every citizen’s individual rights, and fighting against higher taxes.

I am your voice in Olympia and encourage you to contact me with questions, concerns and issues which mean the most to you, your family, and your business.

Thank you for the honor of serving you in the Legislature.

Rep. Eric Robertson

Tackling our state's challenges

Washington state has a public safety crisis

Public safety is one of my top legislative priorities. As a retired Washington State Patrol trooper, I fully understand the unintended consequences of the policies we passed and their affects on our law enforcement professionals. Over the past five years, criminal activity has exploded in Washington. Homicide is up 96% since 2019. Our state ranks #2 for property crime, #3 for automobile theft and #1 for retail theft. Our state also ranks #51 in police officers per capita – behind all states and Washington D.C. – which helps explain why 61% of violent crimes go unsolved.

Washington state has an affordability crisis

High taxes and burdensome regulations have driven up costs for working families. Housing and transportation cost 30% more in Washington compared to the national average. Our state has the 4th highest combined sales tax rate in the country, which disproportionately hurts low-income families. Washington is the 4th most expensive state for groceries. And thanks to the Democrat’s carbon tax, Washington drivers now pay the 3rd highest gas prices in the nation.

The importance of working together in a bipartisan manner

As one of the assistant ranking members on the House Transportation Committee, I want to ensure our state's transportation planning and budgeting is done in a bipartisan and transparent process to ensure every corner of our state has their transportation needs considered.
