Statement: As a county commissioner, I learned firsthand the unintended effects of legislation that does not consider impacts on local government. As state representative, I will be an advocate for legislation that provides adequate funding for required services. Washington needs to encourage business investment by reducing regulation and creating a supportive business environment. We have an obligation to manage our natural resources in a manner that focuses on productivity, restoration, and preservation. I will work to prevent the erosion of private property rights while ensuring responsible and respectful utilization of property. There are abundant opportunities ahead for the 12th District.
