Statement:  My 37+ years experience as an activist and advisor to elected officials, law enforcement, Clergy and community residents has allowed me to have a complete understanding of what it means to be culturally competent and a leader. We need a person who will not forget the purpose of bringing forth our concerns on a National level. Sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, corporate and media reform, fair taxation and income equity are all measures that I support and will carry with me to Congress. Broadening access to more higher learning opportunities such as College Bound this program provide tuition and books for students at 4 year colleges or learning institutions in Washington State, upholding our constitution championing the goals of the Progressive Democratic Party, connecting businesses to national resources, focusing on Washington's economic climate and supporting accountability for carbon cleaning are just a few of the reasons why I feel an urgency to truly represent the people of our state. My party's fight to preserve the beauty and integrity of this Great State of innovators has been made because we do have a few great leaders who are willing to fight the good fight. Yet the disparity between those who have and those who have not widens. I will carry the torch for all. It is my passion to always create problem solving dialog and reach seemingly unsolvable resolutions. Having the opportunities to work at bridging the gap between law enforcement and our communities. As an elected official. I will be looking for other elected officials who share the same reform passion. Amending. Washington's tax structure will preserve the incentives that are productive and repeal tax break incentives for companies that do not provide verifiable benefits to the State. Subjecting companies to ten-year renewals and fair taxation is essential.
