Amanda McKinney - District 1

Amanda McKinney Headshot HIGH RES

Thank you for visiting this page. I am Amanda McKinney, and I am humbled and excited to work as your Yakima County Commissioner for Position 1. I am eager to work with Commissioners Ron Anderson and LaDon Linde on behalf of everyone in our incredible Yakima County.  

My business background and community involvement have prepared me to deal with the important issues facing the County. I have lived in Yakima for over 17 years. A career of nearly 20 years in mortgage banking has allowed me to see hundreds of families live out their dream of home ownership. My Father is a retired State Police Officer. He inspired me to achieve degrees in Pre-Law with emphasis in Criminal Justice and Political Science with emphasis in Constitutional Law. I am proud of my strong ties to our great Law Enforcement community.  

I believe a strong Commissioner can help make Yakima County a better place for all of us to live. I want to blend the values of conservative small-town America with fiscal responsibility and a vision for a more prosperous future. I want a safe Yakima Valley, job opportunities for our children and grandchildren, and a strong sense of community.  

This is OUR county, and my job is to help make county government work better for YOU! I would love to hear from you. I invite you to follow me on social media for up-to-date information and resources at: . I am currently working on creating a weekly newsletter. Check back soon for a link to sign up. Please feel free to send me an email anytime at or reach out by phone at 509.574.1500. I look forward to hearing from you.
