About Dan

I attended North Mason High School and the Kitsap Peninsula Vocational Skill Center. Vocational skills are something every student should be able to take advantage of and graduate with a marketable skill- out the gate. If you have faith in kids to do the right thing and give them the opportunities, you will be amazed by the results. I believe it is our job to encourage them and to give them the tools they will need to succeed, along with the experiences that will help them achieve their goals. Every student has a success story in their future, lets help them uncover it.

It is an honor to serve you in the Washington State Legislature. I currently serve as the assistant ranking member on the Community Safety, Justice, and Reentry Committee. I am also a member of the Local Government and Transportation committees. In addition, I was elected to leadership as the House Republican Whip in 2019 by my peers. I enjoy advocating for ALL my constituents and have an open door and accessible phone - feel free to contact me about anything, anytime. Making a positive difference in the lives of our citizens is an amazing job and I am happy to work for you.

Griffey family

Focus on Safety

I'm extremely passionate about helping survivors of sexual and physical assault. I've fought tirelessly to remove the statute of limitations on rape cases, and to see that every untested rape kit gets processed.

Passed HB 1766 - Creation of a Hope Card program, establishing a new tool to help victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Passed HB 1209, to make illegal the sale and possession of pill presses and other equipment used to manufacture deadly Fentanyl pills and other illicit drugs that are rampant in our communities and killing record numbers.

Introduced legislation to keep communities safe from Sexually Violent Predators, the "worst of the worst" sex offenders, including sex offender facility siting (HB 1751) and requiring community notification when Sexually Violent Predators are placed in less restrictive alternative housing (HB 1734).

Griffey legislator of the year

Washington State Fraternal Order of Police

Legislator of the Year 2022

Rep. Dan Griffey

Griffey bill signing 2023

I was born and raised in Allyn, Washington. I married my childhood sweetheart Dinah and we have 3 beautiful daughters- Alyssa, Megan and Sarah, and 6 amazing grandchildren. Community means everything to our family. We frequently work on projects together and lend a hand wherever we can. Dinah served on the North Mason school board and offers great insights into the needs our students, parents and educators are facing.

My passion for helping our neighbors began with my parents as they brought me with them to many events, fundraisers and projects that needed people to get involved, in order to succeed. I was just a little guy, but it made quite the impression on me and at 16, I began volunteering for our local fire department. I was encouraged to respond to calls directly from school and my teachers were proud of me- even wanting updates. I won’t lie, it was a lot of work, but it was also a lot of fun. There is nothing that compares to joy you feel when you can make a difference in someone’s life. I then went on to become one of the youngest EMTs in Washington State before starting my career as a professional firefighter in my home county.
