Hello, and thank you for visiting my website.
I’ve tried to make this a useful resource for constituents to learn more about their state government, the Legislature, the bills I’ve sponsored, and my priorities and values as a proud member of your 11th-district legislative team.
The most pressing issue we will face in Olympia this session is education funding, I hope we can break through our partisan gridlock and finally fulfill that constitutional promise.
