Statement: As a mom, public school educator, and a taxpayer, I care more about creating jobs, improving our schools, and insuring government is transparent and accountable than partisan bickering and political theater.
In Olympia, I will push for a commonsense balanced, budget that fully funds K-12 education and preserves the safety net for seniors and most vulnerable- without raising taxes. We must make wise investments in job training, economic growth, and support our biggest job creators –small businesses. I will always be a strong champion for low taxes, independent thinking, and listening to you. I ask for your vote.
