What does a Lieutenant Governor do?

marty McClendonThe role of the Lieutenant Governor is unique in that no other position in State government is both Executive and Legislative. The job is an opportunity to make a difference in Washington State and in the lives of its citizens.

In addition to filling in for the Governor which is historically about 3 months a year, a Lieutenant Governor presides over the Senate working with both parties with the goal of creating efficiency. Within this duty, the Lt. Governor is the tie breaker for all ties, presiding over joint sessions with both chambers. The Lt. Governor chairs the Washington state economic development and International relations committee.

Finally, another duty of Lieutenant Governor for Washington State is to be an ambassador to foreign countries, other states and to the citizens of this state.

As your Lieutenant Governor, my focus will be to address several things, including, but not limited to:

  1. Making government accountable and more responsive to its citizens.

  2. Fixing our VA system so veterans receive premier medical care.

  3. Putting a moratorium on all regulations for 4 years and assessing waste in all state government agencies.

  4. Creating a business friendly environment in Washington to attract new business and to encourage entrepreneurship, throughout the nation and abroad.

  5. Fighting to protect and restore private property rights, and all constitutional rights of the citizens of the state of Washington.

I look forward to the opportunity to be your Lt. Governor and to be part of a state government that returns to its’ primary duty, which is to be a servant of the citizens of our great state of Washington.
