Maria Beltran

Washington State Senate, District 14

Maria will be the youngest member serving in the Washington State Senate!


Born and raised in Yakima, Maria brings a wealth of experience (both professional and lived) to her race for Washington State Senate. Whether it is memories of helping her parents at their jobs picking fruit, or as the youngest ever Board President for OneAmerica, Maria is ready to win her election and then hit the ground running as the next State Senator for the 14th LD. The oldest of three, Maria is the proud daughter of Mexican immigrants and agricultural workers, who taught her the importance of hard work and getting an education. After Maria became the first in her family to graduate from college, she returned to Yakima and continued her career as a community organizer; and over the last decade, she has helped candidates up and down the ballot across the entire state get elected and has worked for U.S. Rep. Kim Schrier, State Rep. Debra Entenman, and the House Democratic Campaign Committee. She recently completed AgForestry, a leadership program for individuals in the agriculture, forestry, and natural resources industries. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, Maria believes everyone deserves to feel safe, seen and loved. Maria is looking forward to continuing to serve her community in the Washington State Senate.
