Welcome to the 2024 legislative session!

Friends and neighbors,

As of January 8th, the 2024 legislative session has begun! As your representative in Olympia, I am very excited to advocate for the issues you said mattered most. All our coffee chats, community conversations, tours, and visits over the last eight months with stakeholders and our neighbors has led up to this.

In my 2024 legislative session priorities survey, you shared that your top priorities included community safety, reducing gun violence, and creating more affordable and accessible housing. Over the next nine weeks, I look forward to sharing tangible ways we are working on these issues, some of the legislation I’m working on, and information on exciting upcoming events!

If you haven’t done so yet, there is still time to share your legislative priorities with me in this 1-minute survey!
