Statement: In the business world we're held accountable based on the bottom line. We should hold our legislature accountable in the same way. We have waited four years for the legislature to fund education and ensure excellence in our public schools. That's four years too many. It's time for accountability and results.

We've waited too long for a long-term, practical approach to fixing traffic problems. Piecemeal planning, risky over budget projects and ill-conceived funding proposals have left our region behind. Again, it's time for accountability and results.

After years of legislative gridlock, I decided it was time to step up and bring my Democratic heart and CEO head to Olympia. I bring decades of executive experience at Apple Computer, CampusCE, Deep Canyon and SustainCommWorld. I know we can fully fund education, maintain our safety net, invest in high education, keep Washington competitive, drive for diversity and inclusion, protect our environment and ensure fiscal responsibility if we set priorities and look at options honestly. I ask for your vote

Endorsements: Congressmember Adam Smith, Representative Judy Clibborn, Representative Tana Senn, County Councilmember Claudia Balducci, former Senator Fred Jarrett, former Representative Marcie Maxwell, the State Labor Council and more on our website
