Statement: Thank you for allowing me to be your voice in the Washington State House of Representatives for the last six years. It is a privilege I do not take lightly; an honor I very much appreciate.
Our state faces serious economic challenges. But the problems facing government are no different than those facing your family and mine. The solution: Tighten our belts and spend money on only the most-important things. That’s what I do as a private citizen and that’s what I vote to do as an elected official. I hope I can count on your support. Thank you.
