Thank you for visiting! Please contact me with any questions.

It is my honor to serve as your state Senator for the 10th Legislative District, which includes all of Island County and parts of Skagit and Snohomish.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have about your state government.

Sincerely,

Ron Muzzall,

Your 10th District state Senator.
