Statement: Education, homelessness and affordable housing, healthcare, our shared environment, and traffic are the largest issues facing lawmakers. As a public school teacher I know how these issues affect our children and families. I believe in government of, by, and for the people. I will fight to protect wages to ensure workers are paid what they earn and are secure in their retirement. We citizens need to be represented fairly by our elected officials. We can do better. I will bring to Olympia the leadership you deserve. I am proud to be endorsed by the 25th Legislative District Democrats.
