Statement: Two-years ago, I made a pledge to bring leadership, integrity and accountability to government, focusing on priorities to make our community a better place to live and work. As your State Representative, I’ve worked hard to keep this pledge. I've fought to improve fiscal responsibility and accountability in government, reduce small business taxes, create jobs, help veterans and decrease I-5 traffic congestion. I have advocated for real property tax relief, and worked to prioritize student achievement and school safety.
Your interests will always come first. Together we are making a difference. I respectfully ask for your vote.
