Statement: Voters deserve a senator who listens and takes action on the issues that matter. As a PTA leader and Mom of children in public school, I understand the challenges our families face. As a tech employee stuck in traffic on our congested roads, I experience the same frustrations that commuters across our region do. Olympia must do better, and I will make sure your voices are heard.
Education must take center stage in our budget and policy discussions. I’ll build on the Senate’s record investments in our schools by funding education first, not last. The concerns of drivers will also be my priority; I believe commuters deserve real solutions to flawed tolling programs, and accountability from government agencies. And when it comes to taxes, I’ll make sure families keep as much of their hard-earned income as possible.
I am deeply rooted in my community. I grew up here, and my husband and I are raising our family in Bothell. As both a long time tech employee and community leader, I know our region must do more to give our students opportunities for great jobs in Washington. I would be honored to earn your vote.
