Statement: As your Representative, I have worked in a bipartisan, thoughtful manner for excellent schools; traffic relief; low, stable taxes; and open government. Through hard work we prioritized school funding and accelerated the 18/90 interchange fix by six years. I was the only Eastside legislator to vote against a bill that would shield legislative records from public review. Based on my votes, I was named the most independent Representative. I will always fight for our community.
Endorsements: Congressman Dave Reichert; Councilmembers Kathy Lambert and Reagan Dunn; Mayors of Sammamish, North Bend, Maple Valley, and Black Diamond; many others.
