New legislator experienced in senior services

State Rep. Kelly Chambers, whose professional background is in senior services, is in her first months as a newly elected Washington legislator.

Chambers and her husband, Jeff, own Visiting Angels, a business with locations in Washington and Oregon that provide in-home support for seniors and disableds

The lifelong resident of Pierce County was sworn in along with other new legislators as the 2019 session of the Legislature began officially Jan. 14. Chambers, a Republican who was elected last November in the 25th District (Puyallup, South Hill, Midland, Fife and Parkland), is serving on several committees in Olympia, including Health Care and Wellness.

“I am honored and humbled by the confidence my constituents have placed in me to bring their voice and priorities to Olympia,” said Chambers.

The 105-day legislative session for 2019 is scheduled to end April 28.
