My husband and I are raising three girls in Seattle’s Eastlake neighborhood, and fully funding public schools is my highest priority. I’ve spent my career advocating for those who are less fortunate. As your state legislator, I will work tirelessly for progressive legislation creating opportunity, promoting equality, and removing barriers so everyone can succeed.
Proud to be endorsed by Governor Gary Locke, Senator Jamie Pedersen, Representative Drew Hansen, and many others. However, it’s your endorsement that matters most. I hope I’ve earned your vote!
