Statement: I ran two years ago because I wanted Olympia to focus on what middle class families go through every day. Like you, I work hard, pay a mortgage, and raise a family.
That's why I worked for new investments in UW-Bothell so we can compete in the global economy. I championed the "Jobs Now Act" to create more living wage jobs, and helped pass a budget with no further cuts to K-12 education. I'm proud of my work to strengthen our drunk driving laws, and I'll continue to reject divisive politics, staying focused on issues that affect our families.
