"As a life-long Washingtonian and I believe we can do better for our state. I am going to put justice first, fight for real solutions to problems like homelessness, crime, and addiction, and enforce our laws by supporting our police officers every day. I would be honored by your vote to become the next Washington State Attorney General."
Matt Larkin, a lifelong Washington resident, lives in Woodinville with his wife Shelly and their 4 small children. In his spare time Matt enjoys bike riding and kayaking with his family and coaches his kids in YMCA youth basketball and little league baseball. They are active members of Timberlake Church in Redmond. Matt is engaged with his community including charities supporting our first responders, the homeless and victims of domestic violence.
He graduated from Westmont College with a double major in Political and Social Science. From there, Matt went on to earn his law degree from Gonzaga University School of Law and his Masters of Law Degree (LLM) from George Washington School of Law. He is an active member of the Washington and Oregon Bar Associations and is licensed to practice law in both states. Matt has worked as a Prosecutor for Spokane and Pierce Counties.
Matt began his career working in the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, where he assisted in empowering private charities to obtain federal aid. He later worked in White House Communications where he served as an Associate Director of Presidential Speechwriting for the President of the United States.
He is currently working as Chief Corporate Legal Counsel for his family’s manufacturing business, Romac Industries, in Bothell. Romac employs over 550 people and makes water pipeline products that bring clean water to people all over the world.
Matt also sits on the Board of Trustees for the Evergreen Health Foundation.
It is the duty of the Attorney General’s office to enforce our laws and make sure the people of our state are treated fairly, given justice, and protected. As your Attorney General, I will put the rule of law first, follow up on those who are breaking the law, and make sure our citizens know someone is standing up for them.
Drugs are so prolific and unprosecuted in our communities; they might as well be legal. Despite the raging harm they cause to families and lives, very few drug cases are properly handled by our courts. I will support efforts to seek out dealers and drug makers who are flooding our streets with narcotics and put them behind bars. Those who struggle with addiction should have access to rehabilitation and given the resources they need to break free from dependency.
On the front lines every day, our men and women on the police force deserve our respect and support. I am dedicated to making sure they have the tools, training, and resources to do their job well and meet the needs of their communities. I will also make sure their work is appreciated by the legal system they answer to; right now, many cases are not prosecuted properly, which is disrespectful to the officers who dealt with the crime or misdemeanor. We will take police work seriously and make their job easier by following through on their efforts.
It is a great tragedy in Washington that so many human lives are affected by homelessness. This has an incredible impact on our communities, and we must find a way to bring hope, opportunity, and recovery to our neighbors. As your Attorney General, I will approach these issues with compassion and look for real solutions.
