Rep. Larry Hoff is serving his first term representing Southwest Washington's 18th Legislative District, where he has lived for more than 40 years.

Larry grew up in a small North Dakota town, and joined the Navy after graduating from high school. Upon leaving the service, he enrolled at the University of North Dakota, where he earned a B.S. in Accounting. He then moved to Clark County, and soon joined the credit union industry as interim CEO for Columbia Credit Union (CCU).

After serving at CCU for more than 12 years, he became CEO of Electra Central Credit Union. Seven years later, he was hired as CEO of the Fibre Federal Credit Union, an institution he grew from $400 million to $1 billion before retiring in January 2017.

Larry's successful business background led to his appointment as the assistant ranking member of the House Consumer Protection and Business Committee. The committee considers an array of consumer protection issues, as well as the safety and soundness of state banks and credit unions, the regulation of consumer credit and lending, and the regulation of securities and investments.

He also serves on the House Appropriations Committee, which considers the operating budget, budget processes, and fiscal issues such as pension policy and compensation. He also serves on the House Labor and Workplace Standards Committee, which reviews all legislation related to industrial insurance, unemployment compensation, collective bargaining, family leave, safety and health standards, occupational health, and employment standards.

Larry lives in Vancouver with his wife Renee. They have one son and one grandson. The Hoff's will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in December 2020.
