Statement: I am honored to have served the last six years as your representative in Whatcom County. I have worked hard to provide effective leadership and understand the needs and values we all share. I have fought to lower unemployment, strengthen our local businesses and communities, and have been an outspoken advocate for our agricultural economy.

I will continue, with your support, to be a leader who prioritizes the needs of Whatcom County and ensures that your voice is heard in Olympia.
