Thank you for visiting my website!

I’m Nikki Torres, your senator from the 15th Legislative District, and I’m here to serve you.

Those of us who live and work in the Yakima Valley and the Tri-Cities know we live in a special place unlike anywhere else in Washington. From the farms and orchards of Sunnyside and Grandview to the laboratories of Hanford, from wine country to the Hanford Reach and the Snake — we are blessed with natural beauty, dynamic communities, one of the nation’s most-educated workforces, and a diverse population with a unique set of needs. As your senator, I bring our voice to Olympia, and I want to hear from you.

If you have a problem with a state agency, or a comment or concern with the direction of state government, please do not hesitate to contact me. You can reach me or my legislative assistant, Justus Phelps, at 360-786-7684, by email at Nikki.Torres@leg.wa.gov, or by regular mail at P.O. Box 40415, Olympia, WA, 98504.
