Manka Dhingra was sworn in Wednesday as the state senator for the 45th Legislative District.

Dhingra’s swearing in gives Democrats a 25-24 majority in the Senate ahead of the 2018 Legislative session.

“I’m humbled and proud to represent the communities of the 45th Legislative District,” she said in a press release. “I promise to represent each and every one of my constituents with integrity, honesty and a commitment to solving problems with my colleagues — regardless of their party affiliation. We have a lot of work ahead of us. I am confident that by working together we can make progress toward a better future for our district, our state and our country.”

A King County senior deputy prosecuting attorney and longtime advocate for women, children and veterans, Dhingra is slated to serve as vice chair of the Senate Law & Justice and Human Services & Corrections committees in 2018.
