State Senator David Frockt on His Time in Politics

Washington State Senator David Frockt sat down with us for our first episode just after the 2017 regular session ended. Senator Frockt represents the 46th District, which mostly encompasses North Seattle. He walks us through how he got into politics, what he’s been focused on this past session, and where he might go next.

David Frockt represents the Washington State Senate’s 46th Legislative District, which comprises North Seattle, Lake Forest Park and Kenmore. Elected to the House of Representatives in 2010, David was chosen early on by his Democratic Caucus colleagues as Assistant Floor Leader. He is in his third term in the Senate, and has represented the 46th District in the Senate since the untimely passing of Sen. Scott White. David has served in caucus leadership as Democratic Floor Leader, as Deputy Democratic Leader, and as the top Democrat on the Higher Education Committee. He now serves as the Democrats’ lead writer for the state’s capital construction budget responsible for building and maintaining public buildings and parks.
