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

It is one of the great privileges of my life to have the opportunity to represent the 28th Legislative District, where I was raised by a single mom. It is also where my wife, Laurie, and I raised our two sons. Serving the people of this district is how I hope to give back to the community we love so much. Please remember I work for you. My door is always open to your ideas and comments and you can call me on my cell 253-312-1688.

We will face some challenges with the state budget, but we can solve them if we work together in good faith. Good ideas are non-partisan. The best solutions for the people of Washington will often be bi-partisan. I promise to work with anyone I can to make our state better.

As your state senator, my focus will be:

  • Maintaining a strong education system that supports great teachers and promotes innovative learning;
  • Ensuring a vibrant private-sector job market to strengthen our economy;
  • Addressing our transportation system, particularly major choke points; and
  • Updating public safety laws to better protect citizens.

Having two sons in the United States Army, I will actively engage our service men and women. They and their families are sacrificing so much for us and I want to do everything I can to help them when they return from deployment and to support the families.

This Web site is full of information on the work being done on your behalf. I encourage you to call, e-mail, write or visit me to share your thoughts on ways we can keep our communities strong.

Steve O’Ban, State Senator
28th District
(R – Pierce County)
