I’m proud to serve Washington’s 12th Legislative District and hope you will use this site to stay connected with your citizen Legislature and state government. Please take a moment to bookmark this page and sign up for my email newsletter to keep aware of what I am working on in Olympia.

I believe our state needs to focus on how to deliver essential state services in the most cost-effective manner. These essential services, such as education, transportation and public safety, should be the top priorities of state government. Quality public schools and higher-education institutions can prepare a workforce to help the economy prosper. Maintaining state roads and bridges will help transport goods and services that are vital to our state and region. Providing necessary law enforcement, judicial oversight and correctional efforts will help maintain a safe environment for our businesses and families. These are the priorities I will focus on in Olympia.

It’s always great to hear from you. It helps me do a better job of representing you and your family. I encourage you to stop by, email or call to let me know what you think. Thank you for allowing me to represent you.
