Statement: Government's burdensome taxation and intrusive policies have hurt Washingtonians. As an immigrant who witnessed over regulation, I know how government can take away personal freedoms - I am committed to protecting your rights. I will stand against over-taxation which drives people into poverty. Improved work benefit programs are needed to help educate/train lower income communities. I will work for safe neighborhoods; bring viable solutions addressing the opioid crisis, and demand fiscal accountability on how your hard-earned money is spent.
