Welcome to my website! It's an honor and privilege to serve the 30th Legislative District. Here you will find information regarding how your government is working for you, ideas for reform, news, and how you can stay in touch with me.
During the last 15 years, I have had the opportunity to serve as Federal Way Mayor, Deputy Mayor and City Councilmember. I was able to make great strides to develop the quality of life in our communities and I bring that same dedication with me now as your state representative. In my years in public office I've found that the best ideas come from people in our communities - not from Olympia.
As someone who has raised a family and worked in our district since 1972, I have seen firsthand how our district has grown and changed. I am proud of how far we have come and I am committed to making our future even better.
I am here to represent you and will remain focused on the issues you tell me are important: creating jobs, improving education outcomes, transportation and public safety. We face some tough decisions in Olympia and the solutions we seek need to be long-term and should be prioritized in a way that fits the standards of our communities.
My door is always open and I welcome your calls, e-mails and letters. My office is staffed Monday through Friday. You can also sign up for my e-mail updates to receive the most up-to-date information by clicking here.
Thank you for allowing me to serve you.
(R- Federal Way)
