It’s an honor to have earned your trust to serve as one of your state representatives for the 5th Legislative District. My goal is to ensure the work we do at the state level makes our schools, families, employers and communities stronger.
As former president of the Issaquah School Board, my focus in the Legislature will be ensuring our education system is updated. We must take full advantage of new technologies that can prepare our students for the high-paying jobs in Washington.
I also believe our education system should be treated as a primary force for economic growth. Educating children in innovative ways that make them excited about the high-tech and manufacturing fields is critical. Closing the skills-gap through our community, technical and four-year university offerings must be our focus.
I will also be a strong advocate for smaller, leaner government that focuses on the priorities of government, creating less bureaucracy in the lives of private individuals. While working to ensure equal opportunity, we must remain free to choose our own paths, accept our own risks, and benefit from the rewards of our efforts. This is the American Dream.
This Web site is where you will find information on the work being done on your behalf. Please feel free to contact my office with questions and ideas.
