Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting my website. The Ninth Legislative District is one of the largest districts in our great state, covering all or part of six counties in eastern and southeastern Washington. Its many attractive features include some of the finest agricultural land in the United States, an outstanding public university, and an inviting, primarily rural lifestyle.

For the last 23 years, I have had the honor to deliver accessible and responsible representation to the people of the Ninth District. My goal has always been to provide opportunity to future generations. For me, this means working for fiscal stability through sustainable budgeting, strong support for both K-12 and higher education, a commitment to public safety, and sensible agricultural policies.

My wife and I make our home in Ritzville, the seat of Adams County, which is about an hour’s drive west of Spokane. I currently farm land that has been in my family for five generations, since the birth of wheat farming in the 1880’s.

Making a sustainable living as a farmer requires a vast amount of knowledge concerning diverse aspects of agriculture as well as the capability to grapple with an array of government regulations and taxes. This extensive experience and knowledge equip me well to address the large number of issues that face the people I represent at our Capitol.

Again, I want to thank you for visiting. If you have any questions or concerns about the issues facing our state, please feel free to contact me via email at mschoesler@yahoo.com or by phone at (509) 659-1774.
