Washington state 37th legislative district

Washington's 37th Legislative District is one of forty-nine districts in Washington state for representation in the state legislature.

The district encompasses Beacon Hill, Central District, Rainer Valley, Columbia City, Rainier Beach, and Renton.

The district's legislators are state representatives Sharon Tomiko Santos (pos. 1) and Eric Pettigrew (pos. 2), with Rebecca Saldaña chosen as state senator to replace Pramila Jayapal following Jayapal's win to represent Washington's 7th congressional district in the 115th United States Congress. All legislators in the district are Democrats.

On December 12, 2016, Rebecca Saldaña was selected to fill Pramila Jaypal's seat in the senate over Rory O'Sullivan and Shasti Conrad following a special appointment by the King County Council.[1] Jayapal had recommended Rebecca Saldaña for her replacement, stating "Rebecca is a proven and effective leader – she has gotten results on some of the toughest issues our community faces. I strongly support her appointment to the State Senate."[2]
