Representative Sam Hunt serves the people of Lacey, Tumwater, Olympia, and northern Thurston County. As Chair of the State Government and Tribal Affairs Committee and a member of the Appropriations and the Environmental Health Committees, he is a recognized leader who focuses on key needs our state.

Sam sponsored key bills that have become law, including the Mercury Reduction Act (to remove this dangerous chemical from our homes, schools and environment), and Puget Sound cleanup legislation.
