Statement: Having grown up on the streets of Tacoma and experiencing homelessness as a youth, I learned to take nothing for granted. Despite a rough start to life, I was blessed to have the opportunity to apply hard work and street smarts to become Valedictorian of my class and then graduate from Notre Dame.
As your State Representative, I care about making sure those opportunities exist for everyone. Whether I’m standing against ineffective government and regulations, working to strengthen our schools, or applying my career experience to help get this economy going, I’ll continue working hard to serve you.
