Congresswoman Marilyn Strickland proudly represents Washington’s 10th Congressional District. Born in Seoul, South Korea, Strickland is the first African-American to represent Washington State and the Pacific Northwest at the federal level, and one of the first Korean-American women elected to Congress. As the daughter of a veteran and a former Mayor, Strickland brings a deep-seated passion for service and the experience of rebuilding a recession-era economy to her work on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and House Armed Services Committee. She is the only African-American woman to serve on the House Armed Services Committee, and is a Member of both the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC). She came to Congress to ensure that big government works for the South Sound and serve as a voice for traditionally underrepresented communities as we rebuild an economy that works for all of us. Strickland resides in Tacoma, Washington with her husband, Patrick.
