Welcome to my website! Thank you for your interest in our citizen Legislature and the issues affecting our communities.
Please take a moment to bookmark this page and sign up for my e-mail newsletter to keep aware of what I am working on in Olympia.
We all know Southwest Washington is facing significant challenges. We must recruit employers to our region, ensure a quality education in our schools and protect our most vulnerable citizens. These goals are possible if Olympia will work for us – not against us. It begins with a customer-service mentality, performance plans for our state agencies, and accountability and transparency in our Legislature.
We must also seek out solutions to the transportation problems in our region, adhere to the wishes of our local citizens who have repeatedly rejected extension of Portland’s light rail into Clark County, and enact transportation reforms that ensure efficiency and accountability with your hard-earned tax dollars.
While I have a set of principles and values, I’m willing to work with anyone who is serious about solving our state’s problems – including the operating budget. We must prioritize state spending, keep taxes low, and establish a budget that is based on economic realities.
I’m here to assist you with your dealings with state government and be your advocate in the Legislature. The most important part of my job is listening to those I represent. My door is always open and I welcome your phone calls, e-mails, letters and visits. Please contact me if I can ever be of assistance.
It is an honor to serve you as we work together to protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
