Washington State Representative, 44th Legislative District
Patrol Officer, Seattle Police Department

Mike Hope currently serves as Washington State Representative of the 44th Legislative District.  He is also a 10-year veteran of the Seattle Police Department, where he presently works street patrol.  Prior to holding office, Mike served in the US Marine Corps Reserve from 1994-2001.  Active in his community, Mike coaches track and wrestling for a local public high school, and in 2009, he received UW Bothell's Distinguished Alumni Award in honor of his professional achievements and civic engagement.

Mike chose the Policy Studies graduate program to hone his understanding of the policy-making process and to further prepare him for a career in public service.

"The value of the Policy Studies program has been immeasurable, both while running for office and as a State Representative.  The research skills learned throughout the program have become a part of everyday practicality while serving in Olympia.  I highly recommend this program to anyone thinking about getting into politics."
