Republican Senator Mark Schoesler Awarded 2013 Jim Matson by the Association of Washington Business

Senator Mark Schoesler was presented with the 2013 Jim Matson Award by the Association of Washington Business on Wednesday during its annual policy summit. As leader of the state’s Republican senators Schoesler had a central role in Washington’s historic 2013 legislative session.

Schoesler and Sen. Rodney Tom, D-Bellevue, who teamed up to lead the Senate this year, will share the AWB’s highest honor. It’s named for the late Sen. Jim Matson, a Republican from Selah who served on the association’s executive committee during the 1970s and 1980s, and recognizes a state legislator who consistently supports issues important to Washington’s employers.
