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 31st 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 Washington state and I am excited to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in order to find solutions. We must make critical reforms to the way our state government operates and prioritize state spending, beginning with K-12 education. I know this is possible, and I am excited to work towards this goal.
I will remain focused on the issues you told me are important:
- Meeting our paramount duty to fully fund K-12 education, as required by our state constitution;
- Implementing common-sense reforms to state government, including at the Department of Transportation, to ensure accountability and responsible investment of public tax dollars;
- Reforming Washington’s tax code by making it more predictable and understandable in order for the economy to grow and add family-wage jobs.
The most important part of my job is listening to you. The best ideas 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.
