Statement: I am honored to serve as your representative in Olympia. I have fought to fully fund public schools, increase public transit access and provide economic opportunity for all. While I’m proud of our progress, there is more work to do, particularly addressing housing affordability. I will continue to fight for a more equitable tax structure and protect children in our foster care and juvenile justice systems.
