KNOW YOUR NUMBER: How to advocate for your SCHOOL  – Before you attend, become familiar with the region and district we’re advocating for. Each district elects a senator and two representatives. Our district is #34, our Senator is Sharon Nelson, our Representatives are: Eileen Cody and Joe Fitzgibbon – within the Seattle School district, we represent District 6, our board representative is Marty McLaren.
