Statement: Thank you for the honor of representing you in Olympia. I prioritized protecting our environment, improving transportation including roads, buses, and ferries, and stopping cuts to education and the safety net. As vice chair of the Local Government Committee, I am working to provide tools for local governments to operate efficiently and focus on frontline services.
Although we passed a budget this year without cutting education, we have a long way to go to fully fund our public schools and universities. This will require reforming our broken tax structure so it is more sustainable and fair to the middle class.
