Welcome to my website! Thank you for taking the time to stay connected with me and our citizen Legislature. It’s an honor to represent the 35th Legislative District and work on the issues facing our communities. I encourage you to subscribe to my e-mail updates to learn more about what I am working on throughout the year.
There are many issues facing our great state but I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in order to find solutions. As I have traveled across the legislative district, it is clear you want a state government that is accessible, responsible, and accountable. I know this is possible, and I am excited to continue working towards this goal.
I will remain focused on the issues you told me are important:
- Fully funding K-12 education first and prioritizing the children of Washington state;
- Common sense reforms at the Department of Transportation that holds leadership accountable, supports rank and file employees and invests your tax dollars responsibly;
- Reforming Washington’s tax code by making it more predictable and understandable so businesses can succeed in a 21st Century economy.
Our legislative district has a proud heritage of jobs in farming, timber and shellfish harvesting, and military service. It is important to support these jobs while encouraging growth in all sectors of our economy. By reforming state government I believe we can reduce barriers and allow our economy to grow and add new, family-wage earning jobs.
The most important part of my job is listening to you. The best ideas continue to come from the people in our communities – not from government. I encourage you to get involved in the process by visiting me in Olympia, or testifying on bills important to you. Please contact me to share your thoughts, concerns and questions.
