Statement: Born and raised on a small family farm in the Sumner Valley, I appreciate the challenges and opportunities in our rural communities. As an advocate for equity, I’ve worked in Olympia to make a difference and understand the legislature and public policy from the ground up.
As your State Senator, I will bring a style of leadership that is inclusive, compassionate, and collaborative. I will ensure that your voice is heard at the State Capitol. I am prepared to reach across party lines to enact practical solutions that will improve the quality of life for all residents of the 31st Legislative District.
As a small business owner, I recognize when our small businesses succeed our entire community benefits. I understand the value of your hard-earned tax dollars, and have a clear set of priorities for our district. I will focus on public safety, protection of our environment, and ensuring that residents have access to equal educational opportunities. I will work diligently for residents of the 31st District to ensure state government meets its responsibility to help our citizens lead healthy and productive lives.
Please cast your vote for positive change. I humbly ask for your support. Thank you.
