Klicker sworn in for second term, will lead Housing Committee for Republicans

Republican Mark Klicker was officially sworn into office for his second term as a member of the Washington State House of Representatives, Monday.

Klicker was reelected in November to serve the 16th Legislative District, which covers Prosser, Kennewick, Walla Walla, Benton City, Pasco, West Richland, and many other smaller communities.

“I’m excited to get to work again on behalf of the people of the 16th District,” said Klicker, R-Walla Walla. “I’m especially looking forward to being in Olympia for the upcoming session.”

Due to the pandemic, Klicker was rarely allowed to participate in-person during the last two sessions.

Beginning in the 2023 session, Klicker will serve on three House committees, including the Housing Committee, where he will be the ranking member for the House Republicans. He will also serve on the Postsecondary Education and Workforce and Transportation committees.

“I look forward to working with everyone from both sides of the Legislature to find common ground and real solutions,” said Klicker. “I represent the entire 16th District and want to hear from everyone. I truly want to be your voice in Olympia and do everything I can to help our district and improve Washington.” The legislative session began Jan. 9 and is scheduled to last for 105 consecutive days.
