Welcome to my Web page! I hope you will find it a great resource and a way to stay connected with what’s happening in Olympia.

I’m extremely honored that you have chosen me to represent you and your interests in the Legislature. Please know that I will work tirelessly on your behalf and will represent you with honor, dignity and respect.

My priority is to implement policies that will help our private sector create jobs. Excessive regulations, continued increases in workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance rates, escalating minimum wage costs, and onerous business & occupation taxes have made Washington a difficult place to do business. We must not only rein in government spending, we need to get out of the way of entrepreneurs in this state and our small businesses that will help lead us out of the recession.

Please feel free to send me an e-mail or contact my Olympia office at (360) 786-7612 to express your opinions, ideas and concerns. If you’re interested in receiving e-mail updates during session, click the link on the bottom of this page that says “Subscribe to my newsletter.”

It is a pleasure and a privilege to serve you.

Shelly Short

State Senator

7th District (R – Addy)

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