Statement: I ran for public office because citizens weren’t being heard or valued. I’m proud to be known as a proven advocate who listens and gets results. I led the turnaround for transparent, responsive government through bipartisan consensus and problem-solving. I’ll bring these same values to Olympia. Voters are sick of partisan gridlock. I'll work for common sense solutions to fund schools first, stop unfair tolls, get traffic moving, bring balanced growth sensitive to our environment, and improve police and fire services. I’m endorsed by all Eastside Fire & Rescue Commissioners and would be honored to have your vote.
