Statement: Independent Leadership is needed in Olympia. I have a record of getting results by working collaboratively across the aisle. I've written laws to help seniors, students, veterans and military families and fought for blue collar families like yours and mine. While the Democratic incumbent has a long list of endorsements from political insiders and Party Bosses and is financed by payday lenders, debt collectors, and for-profit education lobbyists, my campaign is supported by people like us including Democrats, Republicans and Independents.

If you're ready for a change from politics as usual, I'd be honored to earn your vote.
