Statement: I'm not a career politician. I had a full career in real estate and medical administration before running for elected office. But, when my neighbors wanted someone to speak for them in Olympia, I decided it was time to give back to my community.
In the State Senate, I've worked hard to get results: protecting our individual rights and working with legislators from both parties for practical solutions. I haven't missed a vote in six years. We increased school funding without raising taxes, lowered college tuition, and made strong investments in transportation. I wrote a law to crack down on red light cameras that were set to trap motorists into paying big fines.
As Health Care Committee Chair, the patient is my number one priority. My telemedicine legislation was signed into law, to help bring the expertise of world-class specialists to rural areas and small towns. Four years from now, I'd like families and property owners to be able to say-thanks to Randi; I have more freedom to live my life without government interference.
Randi is an avid fisher, hunter and NRA member. She and her husband, Bob, live on a small farm near Eatonville.
