Cheryl Pflug is an American politician of the Republican Party. She was a member of the Washington State Senate from 2004 to 2012.  Pflug resigned from the Washington State Senate on July 1, 2012, and currently holds a position on the Washington State Growth Management Board.
Washington has a part-time Senate, so Senators receive only token salaries and work less than six months a year. Pflug was tapped by Democratic Governor Chris Gregiore for appointment to a full-time position on the Growth Management Act (GMA) hearings board in 2012. The 6 year appointment to the Board position more than doubled Pflug's pay as a senator to $92,500. Some in the Republican Party were offended that Pflug failed to run again as they felt party loyalty should preempt her own career aspirations. Opponents note that Pflug was appointed despite having not completed her bar exam. Eighteen months after her appointment, she continued to serve on the Hearing Board without a law license.
