Statement: Many families in our community are struggling, despite lower unemployment. Wages stagnate while costs of food, medicine, and housing rise. It’s harder for our children to start their adult lives, and I believe we can do better, but only if leaders put people over politics and commit to solving our community’s problems instead of partisan bickering.
I will fight in Olympia for better jobs, safer roads, more access to education, apprenticeships, and job training, lower, fairer taxes and reducing the cost of living. Let’s protect our farms and natural resources while growing responsibly. I respectfully ask for your vote.
