As your State Representative, Zachary Zaerr would aspire to make government more efficient for the taxpayer and pass legislation to create a Washington that maximizes freedom of opportunity for all who reside within our borders.
Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Zachary attended college at The Ohio State University, where he studied political science and business. Coming from a working class family, Zachary grew up valuing hard work and respect for others. Zachary has worked as a donut packer at a bakery, as a legislative assistant for a small business association, and now works for The Boeing Company after completing two successful internships with the company.
Zachary’s wife Jenny was born in China and immigrated to the United States with her parents at a young age. They were high school sweethearts and married between their sophomore and junior years of college. They have a Toy Golden Retriever named Riley and can often be found at local dog-friendly bars and restaurants with their pup.
While not natives of Seattle, Zachary and his wife quickly fell in love with the city and the surrounding areas during the past few years. Zachary has a passion for solving the issues confronting the 43rd Legislative District, which he identifies as such: wages and affordability, conservation of the environment, and the growing homeless population in Seattle.
Zachary would always put the citizens of Washington and the constituents of the 43rd Legislative District above political party or special interest group. Zachary is an outspoken opponent of Donald Trump and the divisiveness that is caused by hate speech. Our campaign looks forward to meeting many of you out in the district, hearing the issues that impact you, and working to solve them together.
