Statement: I am running to bring common sense policies back to the 46th Legislative District. For years, Seattle politics have expanded to the rest of our District, hurting the community we call home. I-405 is often at a standstill, homeless encampments line I-5, and Seattle’s jobs tax drives companies from the city. A state income tax is constantly demanded, car tabs are not $30, and Seattle proposes a sugar tax. Independent thinkers, is this what you’ve asked for from your elected representatives?
I humbly ask for your support, and I will faithfully serve the 46th Legislative District.
