Statement: Having lived in the Wenatchee valley for over 51 years, I've seen a great deal of change, but what hasn't changed is that agriculture still drives the local economy. Our farmers need the latitude to do what they do best - grow food. I'm passionate about land use issues and affordable housing and finding ways to help more families get into homes. I believe that over regulation and increasing taxes stifle economic growth and we need to find ways to streamline rules and regulations and to reduce taxes. We also need to protect our small business owners from increased taxes.
