Statement: Born and raised in Spokane, I know firsthand about the education and employment challenges that face our community. Serving as your Representative for the past fifteen years has been a privilege that I do not take lightly or for granted. Together we have made record investments in our schools and worked to close wasteful tax loopholes. But there is still work to be done. Moving forward, we need proven leaders who can build on our legislative successes, continue to fight for Spokane’s best interests, and deliver results for our community. I humbly ask for your vote.
