Statement: It’s an honor to serve as your Representative and advocate for our local values. In Olympia, I fought for investments in local projects strengthening our communities, passed the nation’s first drug take-back program and other measures tackling our opioid crisis, and developed a Hunger-Free Students’ Bill of Rights ensuring every student is ready to learn.
I worked across the aisle to fully fund education, protect our environment, and strengthen our economy, but there is more work to do. Endorsements: Senators Murray and Cantwell, Firefighters, Nurses, Conservation Voters, Planned Parenthood Votes, Alliance for Gun Responsibility, Democrats, and more!
