Statement: Representing you, I have worked every day to make progress on our shared values. Our kids deserve to have education fully funded. It's the key to Washington's economic future. Mental illness isn't a character flaw, it's a treatable illness. Everyone should pay their fair share of taxes. Transgender people should not be discriminated against. Your race and zip code should not govern your access to justice or how healthy you will be. Affordable housing stabilizes lives and communities. I will continue to work hard on these issues and many others. Thank you for returning me to a job I love.
