InfoBorn in Tacoma, Washington on May 23, 1950, Lieutenant Governor Owen graduated from Frankfurt American High School in 1968. Upon returning to the U.S. after graduation, he moved back to his birth state of Washington and then later settled in Shelton. During the next 22 years, Owen was a small business owner and became a prominent member of his community.

Brad Owen was elected as Washington State�s 15th lieutenant governor in 1996 and re-elected in 2000. Lieutenant Governor Owen serves the state as president of the Senate, and is the acting governor in the absence of the governor. Prior to his election as lieutenant governor, Owen served as Shelton finance commissioner from 1976-1979, as a member of the Washington State House of Representatives from 1976-1982, and in the Washington State Senate from 1983-1996.

Lieutenant Governor Owen has dedicated his term of service to provide leadership in the field of public health and safety, with an emphasis on substance abuse and prevention. He is the co-chair of the new Washington State Mentoring Partnership, as well as the chair of the Legislative Committee on Economic Development and International Relations. He has conducted many foreign trade and goodwill missions and promotes stronger ties among Washington State�s economic and international communities. Additionally, as president of a non-profit organization called Strategies for Youth (SFY), he develops and delivers positive messages about substance abuse and bullying awareness to youth, as well as to the community at large. In 2002, he received an Honorary Doctorate of Letters (Humanities) from Walla Walla College for his years of public service and work with kids and communities.
