It’s an honor and a privilege to serve the people of the 28th District in the House of Representatives.

This 2018 Legislative session I look forward to serving you and standing up for:

  • Our children and grandchildren by strengthening our education system so every child in our great state has a fair shot at the American Dream;
  • Military families and veterans who make unprecedented sacrifices for our state and country and deserve our unequivocal support whether transitioning to civilian life or ensuring full access to services;
  • The middle class so well-paying jobs and economic opportunity are available to all Washingtonians and not just the wealthy few;
  • Providing stability for families by ensuring mental health and health care services are available to everyone who needs them; and
  • Communities across Pierce County so they are safe, healthy and vibrant places in which to raise our families and work.
