Sen. Christine Rolfes was sworn in for another term earlier this week in Olympia.
Rolfes, D-Kitsap County, was re-elected to the state Senate in November. The Bainbridge Island lawmaker, who served for six years on the Bainbridge Island City Council before being elected to the House of Representatives in 2006, has been a member of the senate since her appointment in July 2011.
She successfully ran in 2012 to retain her seat, and was unopposed in her re-election bid last year.
Rolfes was sworn in before the start of the 2017 Legislative Session by Washington Supreme Court Justice Mary Fairhurst.
