Statement: Olympia has failed our students, families and small businesses. They've raised taxes and spent money at an unsustainable rate. While politicians spend months in special sessions and pass last-minute budgets most never read, our kids, schools and small businesses suffer!
It's time for change! My wife and I have four kids and I care deeply about our state's future. I will work for a common sense, sustainable budget that fully funds schools and provides relief for small businesses to help create new jobs.
