Keith Swank
Keith Swank Keith was born in Maryland, and raised on a farm in Pennsylvania. After the death of his father when Keith was just four years old, his mother took on the hard task of raising four boys while maintaining the farm.

He began learning a strong work ethic in the first grade. Each day, he and his brothers did chores on the farm, then attended school, and continued with chores after school.

After graduating high school, Keith made the decision to postpone college and join the Army. While in the Army he attended Airborne training, Ranger training and Halo training. The strength of will and character he developed during that time gave him the drive to pursue his dreams.

After leaving the Army, Keith was accepted to University of Washington, where he studied psychology, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology.

To help pay for school, he took a job with the Seattle Police Department, and has remained with the department for over 21 years. He was promoted to Sergeant in 2005, and later to Acting Lieutenant of the 911 Call Center.

Keith is happily married with 4 children. His oldest son is a cadet at West Point, his oldest daughter is a senior in high school, and his youngest son and daughter are in the seventh and first grades respectively.

Why did Keith decide to run for Congress? In his words, “I am worried about what we are leaving for our children. It is our responsibility to leave this country in better shape than we inherited it.”
