Thank you for visiting! Please contact me with any questions.

Dear Friends,

Welcome to my official legislative website! Thank you for taking the time to stay connected with me.

It’s an honor to represent the great people of the 10th District. As much as we have to be proud of and look forward to, we know our communities face challenges. This requires us to work together to pass legislation that create jobs in these tough times, improve our local ferry runs, strengthen our public schools, and lower health care costs.

The solutions to our challenges must take into account our state operating budget. We need long-term solutions that reset, reform and reshape state government to enable a sustainable budget.

On this website you will find some of the solutions I support to address these big issues. This is also the place to keep track of the bills I am working on and read news releases and past e-newsletters.

I encourage you to sign-up to receive my e-mail updates, it is the best way to stay informed on what’s happening in Olympia.

The most important part of my job is listening to you. The best ideas continue to come from the people in my communities – not from Olympia. Please contact me to share your thoughts, concerns and questions.
