Statement: Politicians claim they need to continually increase your taxes but tax fatigue is taking its toll - car tabs for ST3, 10% sales tax, increasing property taxes, threats of an income tax and now a head tax. Lack of results, fiscal mismanagement, and identity politics are polarizing and endangering our state. Enough is enough. There is an urgent need for proven, disciplined leadership on issues facing the Eastside: quality schools, reducing traffic, support for small businesses and lower taxes. I’m running to be your next state legislator because we need mission focused, goal driven positive disruption in Olympia.
