Melanie Morgan was elected to represent the 29th Legislative District in 2018. Since then she has made an impact on the state by bringing a new voice for representation, equality, and equity to Olympia that reflects her diverse district. She has worked long and hard over her career to be chosen for the role of representing her district, and she plans to continue to bring that hard work for years to come.
“Melanie is the type of leader that the 29thlegislative district deserves. She is
dedicated to serving her community with integrity and I am excited to work with
her on progressive issues that affect our most vulnerable residents.”
–Attorney General-Bob Ferguson
Melanie Morgan was first elected to the Franklin-Pierce School Board in 2015 with over 75% of the vote. Director Morgan was instrumental in the passage of the district’s $157 million bond measure in 2016, the first bond measure to pass in the district since 1998. Building upon the success of this measure, Director Morgan once again played a critical role in the successful passage of two school levy renewals this February. Director Morgan has worked with community leaders to explore partnerships with local organizations in the 29th LD to better serve the community. The Parkland Foursquare church, pastored by Dan Donohue is such an example. The church has adopted one of the district's elementary schools, hosting events and providing meals, clothing, and other necessary resources to the school’s children. Director Morgan is currently working with Young Life to create a mentorship group for young black males, with a focus on participation in STEM fields. Director Morgan has also worked extensively in her off time to feeding and clothing the homeless.
