Statement: My motto is less tax, less government, more freedom. Returning home after serving a combat tour in Iraq, I was amazed at how much state government had grown and kept spending more money than it took in. That's why I introduced HJR 4225, an amendment to the Washington State Constitution requiring a balanced budget be passed by the legislature. I will also continue to introduce and support legislation that reduces government spending, stops government waste, promotes small business job growth, protects our right to bear arms, and lowers the overall tax burden.
I would be honored to have your vote.
