Elected Experience: 40th LD Representative since 1997
Other Professional Experience: As owner of Energy Horizon Corporation, I direct an international energy planning program and work with Clean Technology startup companies. I'm co-founder of the first clean technology angel investment group in 2006: Northwest Energy Angel. I was honored when a national magazine named me one of the 13 most technologically-savvy State Legislators in the country.
Education: Central Washington University (BA, Political Science)
Community Service: I'm an active, fourth-generation native of Guemes Island. I currently chair the National Conference of State Legislatures Environment Committee and am former President of the PNW Economic Region.
Statement: It is my great privilege to represent the residents of Whatcom, Skagit and San Juan counties. I have passed legislation to promote energy innovation, invest in renewable energy, and reduced environmental impacts. I have fought and won critical investments in our ferry system and local infrastructure, including $106 million for education, conservation, and facility projects across our district.
I'll continue to use the experience you have given me to continue work on technology, infrastructure, clean energy, privacy and telecommunications to ensure Washingtonian continues to lead in these important areas that result in jobs of today and tomorrow. Thank you.
