Statement: I have been proud to serve my fellow citizens for the past 18 years as a Washington State Park Ranger, but I am frustrated by a political system that isn’t working for 99% of us. I want to go to Olympia to be your voice. To stand up for labor rights, tax fairness and social justice, and to help create a sustainable economy by: reinvesting in our state, taking the lead in renewable energy, and supporting our schools and local businesses to build strong communities.
It’s your government, spending your money, it’s about time it starts working for you!
