I am running as Independent GOP because I believe in the principles of the Republican platform and both the US and WA State Constitutions and the values they represent.

We now have the highest gas excise tax in the nation following the largest gas tax increase in Washington State history. The voices of 'We the People' were not listened to in the local Transportation Committee meetings. We were ignored when 2/3rds of us voted to repeal this lifestyle and commerce restrictive tax (November 2015 Advisory Vote).

If entrusted with this office, I pledge to you that I will uphold my oath to both the Washington State Constitution and the Constitution of the United States. You can rest assured that my actions will be strictly limited by both documents. I will listen to the people and I promise to vote for sensible spending and lower taxes to ensure a fiscally responsible future for ourselves and our children.
