The Page Program, 2024 Legislative Priorities Survey, and a Working Families Tax Credit Update

Dear friends and neighbors,

Thank you so much to everyone who filled out the session priorities survey in my last e-newsletter! If you haven’t had a chance to fill it out, it’s not too late. You can still do so here. We’ve received a lot of responses so far, and I’m grateful for the guidance as we plan for next session. I will give an overview of the results in an upcoming newsletter.



The House Page Program has started accepting applications for next session, and I’m looking forward to sponsoring students from our district. This is an opportunity for students ages 14-17 to come to Olympia for a week and learn more about how our state legislature works. Students page for one week at a time, attending a Page School to learn more about the legislative process and supporting the operations of the House during floor action and with other daily tasks. Pages also receive a stipend for their time and can earn community service hours.

The program is open to all and I welcome applications from students of all backgrounds who live or attend school in the 27th District. Several years ago, a scholarship program was established to encourage any student, regardless of income level, to apply for and participate in the Page Program. The scholarship offsets the costs of traveling to and staying in Olympia.

You can learn more about the program here, and apply for the page scholarship hereInterested students should complete an application as soon as possible – the 2024 session only runs for 60 days and the first pages will serve the week of January 8-12.


You can also check out this interview I did with Viviane, who paged in the House last year.

I’m looking forward to meeting this year’s 27th LD pages!


Earlier this year I mentioned that the Working Families Tax Credit was accepting applications, and I’m incredibly excited to know that we’ve already refunded more than $108 million to working families across the state. We’ve received nearly 190,000 applications, and it’s not too late for you to apply. You can learn more about whether you qualify and how to apply here.
