Statement: Actions speak louder than words. As your longtime neighbor, I will represent you in Olympia and ensure we get our fair share here in Southwest Washington.
I am the only candidate in this race who supported the I-5 Bridge replacement plan and stood up against oil trains. I work every day to protect vulnerable citizens, address our affordable housing crisis, and invest in economic growth that benefits our region today and for future generations. We deserve a representative who will work tirelessly for you and won’t back down from funding K-12 education. I ask for your vote!
