Sen. Perry Dozier, R-Waitsburg.

Thanks for visiting my webpage! I’m Perry Dozier, your senator from the 16th Legislative District. The 2021 legislative session is my first in Olympia, and I am proud to represent the people of Southeast Washington at the statehouse.

There is much we can accomplish for our corner of Washington — for agriculture, for small business and for the people of the 16th. We face enormous challenges in rebuilding our economy after our COVID shutdown, everything from making sure unemployment benefits are delivered on time, to staving off the impact of crippling tax increases on small business.

But it’s what comes next that is most important. Creating a sound business climate, promoting educational opportunities from preschool to college, and ensuring that state government spends responsibly and wisely. In the 16th District, from Prosser to Dayton, the Tri-Cities to Walla Walla, partisanship has never been more important than getting the job done.

I want your help in carrying on that tradition. I hope you will let me know how we can help. If you have a problem in your dealings with a state agency, or you have a comment or general concern about state government, please do not hesitate to contact my office, by phone, email or mail. Above all else, we are here to serve you.
