Statement: I am proud to serve the people and communities of the most diverse legislative district in Washington State. Raised in the 37th District, I learned at an early age from local leaders and activists that a vibrant democracy demands our unwavering vigilance and our full participation. Now, as then, I work to strengthen public education for each and every child, to expand economic opportunities for all men and women, and to protect our universal civil rights. I ask for your continued vote of support so I can carry on our fight for equity and justice for all. Thank you.
