State Rep. Chad Magendanz, a former Issaquah School Board member, took the oath of office Jan. 14 to represent Issaquah and the 5th Legislative District in Olympia.

Magendanz, a freshman Republican and 17-year resident in the district, succeeded longtime former state Rep. Glenn Anderson in the House of Representatives seat.

Magendanz is the assistant ranking member on the House Education Committee, and also serves on the House Higher Education and House Technology & Economic Development committees.

“Having been involved in education reforms for several years, I am looking forward to continuing the education reform and funding discussion in my exciting new role,” Magendanz said in a statement.

The 105-day legislative session opened Jan. 14, as lawmakers gathered in Olympia to tackle the 2013-15 state budget and a nearly $1 billion budget shortfall.
