ReIMG_0468p. Drew MacEwen, R-Union, was sworn in yesterday on the House Floor. The galleries were full of friends and family, including MacEwen’s wife Danelle and two sons, who gathered to watch the opening  ceremonies.

“It’s a privilege to be chosen as state representative for the 35th District. I felt the true weight and importance of that honor while taking the oath of office,” MacEwen said. “We have a lot to do in order to address the budget, fund education, and get Washington working. I’m excited to get started and proud to be a voice for the people back home.”

In the oath of office, MacEwen stated, “I will uphold the Constitution and laws of the United States of America, the Constitution of the State of Washington, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of the office of a Washington State Representative to the best of my ability.”

MacEwen, who has a background in small business and finance, will serve on four House committees: Business and Financial Services, Agriculture and Natural Resources (assistant ranking), Capitol Budget, and Early Learning and Human Services.

The 2013 Legislative Session is scheduled to last 105 days. Rep. MacEwen can be reached at his office in 431 John L. O’Brien building of the Capitol Campus or via e-mail at
