Thanks for visiting my Web site. It’s an honor to be your state representative and work in Olympia for the issues that matter the most to Everett, Lake Stevens, Marysville, Mill Creek, Snohomish and all the neighborhoods in between.
Education is an important issue to our communities, and I will fight to make sure the state provides students with what they need in the classroom to succeed in the future. Education is the paramount duty of the state according to our state’s constitution, and it should be funded first.
We need to take a hard look at the budgeting process here in Olympia. The priorities of government are not being used to fund what’s important and leave out what is not. Restructuring our government will allow us to look for more opportunities for economic growth and stability.
As a Seattle police officer, I deal with tragic circumstances all too often. I see the patterns of criminals and know how important it is for people to feel safe on their own streets. We need to make sure people are held accountable for their actions and that victims are put first. I was proud to sponsor the Lakewood Police Officers Memorial Act, which was approved by voters in November 2010, to limit bail for the the most dangerous repeat criminals.
I hope you’ll use this site to find out more about me and the work I’ve been doing for you in Olympia. Check out the press releases I’ve sent to the media and sign up for my periodic e-newsletters. You can find legislation that I’ve proposed by clicking on “My Bills.” This site is also a great way for you to contact me and give me your feedback. I hope you’ll continue checking back and help me be a better representative for you and your interests.
