State Rep. Barbara Bailey, R-Oak Harbor, has been named 2009 Legislator of the Year by the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs. The 10th District lawmaker was recently recognized for her efforts on behalf of Washington state law enforcement officers in a ceremony.

“Public safety is a top priority for Rep. Bailey. She has always been supportive of our issues and is a friend of law enforcement,” said David Hayes, a member of the council. “Rep. Bailey listens intently, is receptive and gives us good feedback. She cares about people — that is always evident.”

The council works to protect the rights and quality of life for law enforcement officers in Washington state.
