Statement: Government should support and enhance, not limit the people's success. I take the title, "Representative" very seriously. Your representative should have your back when the government makes decisions that affect you. I have lived in 4 countries and I am multi-lingual. I understand cultural differences among our diverse district.
My wife and I have four children. We are heavily involved in education. I want to see education funded first. I want to maximize choice and opportunity. I want Washington to be attractive to businesses so they bring jobs. And I want people to enjoy real freedom. I appreciate your vote.
