Statement: I’m honored to represent you in Olympia and am running for reelection to keep the Legislature’s focus on issues that matter to our community: a strong economy, excellent education, and safe neighborhoods.
I’ve helped defeat billions of dollars in new taxes so families can keep more of their money. Instead of higher taxes, we should better prioritize spending, which is why I've consistently advocated to send public schools our first dollar, not our last dime. Lastly, I’ve led the fight to keep heroin injection sites out of our community and won't stop until they are as illegal as heroin itself.
