Statement: Next year
the state faces the challenge of fully funding K-12 education without damaging
the social safety net that protects our most vulnerable. A fully funded education system can still
fail a child that comes to school sick,
hungry, or has no place to call home.
As your state Representative I will continue my work on
ensuring access to quality health care for all Washingtonians. The state is moving forward in improving our
health care system by integrating our medical and behavioral health systems. I ask for your vote so that I may continue to
work towards that goal.
