Today, we are proud to announce that Brian Burnett, a distinguished public servant and retired Chelan County Sheriff, is declaring his candidacy for State Representative District 12, Position 1, as a Republican candidate.

This announcement comes in the wake of State Representative Keith Goehner’s move to seek a higher office, creating an opportunity for Brian to step up and lead in a new capacity.

Burnett, 56, is a respected figure in the community, residing in Wenatchee with his wife, April, of nearly 37 years. Together, they have raised a loving family, with seven children and eight grandchildren, and more on the way. This strong family connection fuels Brian’s passion for building a better future for all residents of District 12.
