Dear neighbors,

I am running because I believe the state legislature needs to set priorities starting with the fundmental functions of government. We must fully fund basic education first, and support our men and women on the front lines of public safety. We also need regulation reform so small businesses have more ability to create good-paying jobs.

I have spent my life in service. First in the Navy, and the last 21 years as a police officer. Now I want to take that public service to the next level as your State Representative. I would appreciate your vote.

- Dave Hayes



Dave has been in public service for most of his adult life, first as a member of the U.S. Navy stationed at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island as a part of VAQ-134 and the U.S.S. Carl Vinson.  While working at the Boeing Company in Everett, Dave began volunteering as a Reserve Police Officer for the city of Marysville and later served the city as a full time policeman between 1994 and 1998.  Since 1998, Dave has proudly worked for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.  He has been a patrol deputy, detective, member of the SWAT team and currently serves as a Sergeant in the Special Operations Division where he created the Security Unit.


Dave began serving in leadership positions as a police officer early in his career at Marysville Police Department.  While employed by the city Dave was elected by his fellow officers to represent them as President of the Marysville Police Officers Association.  As an employee of the Sheriff’s Office Dave has served as Secretary and Vice President of the Snohomish County Deputy Sheriff’s Association.  Dave has now served as the President of the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs’ (WACOPS) for the past two years after serving four years as a member of the Executive Board.  WACOPS is a legislative lobby group representing over 4500 law enforcement officers statewide.  He has also served in leadership positions at Camano Lutheran Church on the Executive Council and Childcare Ministry Team as well as on the board of his local water association. 


Dave and Lisa Hayes have been married for 21 years, raising their two sons Jeff and Chris on Camano Island for the past 15 years.  Both sons serve their country as members of the U.S. Army.  Jeff is on active duty, while Chris serves as a member of the U.S. Army Reserves.  Dave and Lisa are active members of Camano Lutheran Church and have enjoyed volunteering as youth mission leaders, Sunday school teachers and members of ministry teams.  Their hobbies include playing cards with friends and preparing gourmet homemade sausage as gifts during the holidays. 


Dave bears strong personal values and strength of character based on his faith as a Christian man and a public servant as a law enforcement officer.  His values and character traits transfer directly to his future service in the Washington State Legislature.  Dave feels that the word integrity encompasses the values of honesty, trust, pride and loyalty.  Dave will bear forth the character trait of integrity while serving as a State Representative serving the 10th Legislative District.
