Statement: My mission as State Senator for LD 18 is to represent the interests and needs of the people of my district and the state of Washington. For too long, out of state corporations and special interests groups have financed the elections, I will fight to get big money out of politics. To see where a candidates' financial influence is held look up pdc.wa.gov and follow the money.
I have been endorsed by the Washington State Labor Council who represents over 600 unions and over 400,000 Washington workers. I have the support of teachers from various local school districts. I will fight to protect the working families of Washington from unfair regressive taxation. I will help fully fund the schools without raising taxes on working families and without cutting funds for mental health from the budget.
I will fight to protect our natural resources and open spaces for all to enjoy. I am a Rural Democrat, I believe in equal rights for all, I support 2nd amendment rights, fiscal responsibility and protecting the rights of farmers and property owners.
Together we can build a brighter future. I would be honored to have your vote.
