Mark Miloscia is currently the State Senator for Washington’s 30th Legislative District, and he previously served as State Representative from Jan 1999 to Jan 2013. His entire adult life has been devoted to military and civilian service to the people of Washington and the United States.
Born in Biloxi, Mississippi, Mark’s public service career began in the U.S Air Force. An Air Force Academy graduate, he spent much of his 10 years of active duty piloting B-52s and in Contract Management.
These and other work experiences—and time spent at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University—convinced him that government cannot serve the people effectively unless it becomes more open, more accountable, and more efficient in using limited resources to achieve needed results.
Improving government accountability and performance has been a key focus of Mark’s terms as a legislator. A former Chair of the Audit Review and Oversight Committee, Mark has served as a Washington State Quality Award Examiner and a National Baldrige Examiner. He is the author of the first Washington State law to require strict, comprehensive performance audits of state government, and the architect of Washington’s 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness.
