Thank you for visiting my official Washington State Senate website.
Please take a few moments to look around. You will find information on the 25th Legislative District, issues affecting our communities, news releases, e-newsletters and how to contact me.
As you know, our state faces many challenges and difficult choices. I remain focused on the issues that you have told me are most important to you.
- Preserving and creating jobs;
- Improving our public schools; and
- Ensuring a prioritized and accountable state government.
I’m focused on finding long-term, sustainable solutions to strengthen our state for future generations. If state lawmakers can ease the regulatory burden on employers, they can help to preserve and create jobs. By strengthening our economy, our state will have more resources for the priorities such as education and public safety.
As our state continues to address operating budget challenges, it’s vital that the Legislature bring spending in line with revenue. The upcoming 2013 Session promises to be a challenging one, but I am hopeful and optimistic that we will work together to deliver the results our communities deserve.
One of the most important aspects of my job is listening to those I represent. I welcome your e-mails, letters, calls, and visits. While we may not agree on everything, you will always find an open door and an open mind.
It’s an honor to represent the communities that make up the 25th District. Please contact me if I can ever be of assistance.
