Local representatives missed few votes
June 3, 2014
For the first time in years, Washington Votes did not list local politicians at the top of its annual Missed Votes Report.
In the 2014 legislative session, Reps. Jay Rodne (R-5th, North Bend) and Chad Magendanz (R-5th, Issaquah) as well as Sen. Mark Mullet (D-5th, Issaquah) ranked low in the report.
Magendanz didn’t miss any votes and Mullet only missed two. Rodne missed the most out of local representation, with eight total.
In previous years, Rodne ranked among the most missed votes, missing 77 in 2013 and 62 in 2012.
The 41st District and 48th District representatives ranked fairly low as well, with the exception of Rep. Craig Habib (D-48th District) who missed 33 votes.
