Statement: Like many families, my wife and I worry about the economy, our son’s education and the future. I want to take my experience working in the public and private sectors and as a husband and father to Olympia to create good jobs and fight for better education funding. Even as the economy begins to improve, I know there is a long way to go. With your vote I can fight for better jobs, affordable health care, a balanced budget, a clean environment.
