Statement: As your representative, I will work for common sense reforms that will create jobs and reduce taxes on families and small businesses. We must reduce and re-prioritize government spending and demand that Olympia lives within its means. Also, we must reduce the regulatory burdens on businesses to create private sector job growth and we must commit to making our children’s education our top priority.
Now more than ever, we must rise above partisan politics and powerful special interests to fix the problems in Olympia. Please join me in demanding a new direction. Together, we will get Washington back on track!
