Statement: I believe elections should be competitive and offer the voters a choice; too many have sacrificed too much to allow whom represents us be a forgone conclusion. I know representing you would be a privilege and not a long-term career, as electing new people with new ideas keeps our legislature vibrant and truly representative.
By asking others to sacrifice, representatives should do the same. If elected, I will return 10 percent of my salary to the Treasury. I strongly support marriage equality and guaranteed funding of our ferry system. Elect a new voice to Olympia! Your vote is appreciated.
