Statement: We must grow jobs and help local businesses thrive. That’s why I helped pass the 2012 Jobs Now package that will create construction-related and long-term jobs for our region, improve roads, and modernize college facilities. I’ve fought for increased transparency, accountability, and reforms in state government; and made investments in transportation.
I’m proud to have led the legislature’s effort to reduce gang violence. I’ve worked to expand college scholarships and funding for UW Bothell, and I’ll continue to fight to fully fund K-12 education as we prepare our kids for the future. I’d be honored to earn your vote.
