Working hard for our community
It is my honor to represent you in the Washington State Senate.
I was born and raised in South King County and as your State Senator I've worked to make government more responsive to our community.
Our state is struggling with hard times and an uncertain future. Out-of-control state spending has only made matters worse—a broken budget, billions in deficits, and severe cutbacks to our schools and colleges. I've worked hard to ensure my colleagues approach the state budget in the same way we all approach our family budgets: by saving more and spending less.
I've also advocated for investments in those things that grow our economy and keep our region competitive: education and transportation.
My chief responsibility, however, will always be helping individuals and families address their unique challenges when navigating government. Please contact me if I can ever be of service.
Thank you for your continued trust and support, and I look forward to hearing from you!
Washington State Senator
