ABOUT BRYAN

Bryan Sandlin is a lifelong resident of the Yakima Valley. His parents came to Richland after his father Jerry served in WW2, where he met his wife, Irene. In 1952 they broke out a homestead north of Granger and began farming. Bryan started working on his family farm at an early age. At twelve years old, he was able to oversee a crew of ten for his first apple harvest and would later become Manager of Sandlin Farms, Inc. 

Bryan attended Granger Grade Schools and graduated from Zillah High School in 1976. After earning his Bachelor’s Degree in General Studies with an emphasis on business, political science, and horticulture from Washington State University, he interned in the 1981 legislative session assigned to Appropriations Chairman Representative Bob Williams. In the fall of 1981, he also interned with Congressman Sid Morrison in Washington D.C.

 

Bryan ventured into banking afterward, taking a job as Bank Manager Trainee at Yakima Valley Bank in Selah, and serving as a Loaned Executive in the United Way Campaign.

For over 20 years, Bryan has been the Lead Fieldman and Operations Manager for Highland Fruit Growers, Inc. He is widely known for his time spent as President of Sandlin Farms, Inc., Highland Fruit, Yakima Fruit and Cold Storage, and Price Cold Storage and Packing Company.

Bryan has spent many hours volunteering in the community from coaching his kids’ basketball and baseball teams in their youth, to Board Director and Greens Committee Chairman at Yakima Country Club from 1996 to 2000. He is recently a grandfather of two, a father of four, plus two son-in-laws, and a husband to his wife Debbie of 38 years.

 

Bryan is a member of St. Paul’s Cathedral Parish in Yakima, WA. He enjoys spending time with his family, fishing trips to Hell’s Canyon, and golf with close friends. Bryan and Debbie reside near Zillah, where they raised their four children.

 

With their kids now grown, Bryan feels the call to apply his life experience toward representing the people he has become familiar with in the 15th District. His work experience in the fruit packing business has taken him to every corner in the 15th District, enabling him to understand the dynamics and needs unique to each community. With personal experience in farming, farm labor, diversified farming, and training in commercial lending to a variety of local businesses, Bryan understands the many diverse aspects of working and living in Central Washington.

THE ISSUES

  • Government overreach has never been more pervasive in our lives in Washington State. I want to be part of a new Republican House Majority that puts an end to a long stretch of one party rule in the State Legislature that gives this politically ambitious Governor a rubber stamp for his misguided agenda.

  • Law enforcement needs to be empowered to enforce the law, not defunded. Law enforcement should be authorized to apprehend criminal suspects, not give up the chase and let criminals roam our streets and neighborhoods. 

  • There are many water issues around the 15th District. Enhancement, conservation, domestic use quality and quantities for cities as well as all the diverse actions conducted by the many reclamation entities in this vast farming area. I look forward to discussing and representing these issues in Olympia for our District. 

  • Homelessness, Mental Health and drug addiction are very serious issues that have touched many of us. I will engage in the needed dialogue that I hope will bring meaningful solutions to these concerns. 

 

"The issues of water, government regulations, excellence in education, homelessness, mental health, and the recent problem of government overreach are conversations I have engaged in with people around the 15Th District for my entire career. I look forward to the opportunity to represent the voices in our district in Olympia, with the common sense and family values that are shared among people in our cities, towns, neighborhoods, and farms around this beautiful part of our state." - Bryan Sandlin
