Statement: As your former State Representative, Federal Way City Council Member, and Federal Way Mayor, I have served you, the citizens of the 30th District, with integrity and dedication for almost two decades.
Politics has become too divisive. I am running because the problems facing our district and state cry out for action and common-sense solutions. I am deeply concerned about higher taxes, crime prevention, job creation, improving our schools, affordable housing, and traffic congestion. When I am elected, my heart and soul, my experience and determination will represent you our hard working families! I ask for your vote.
