Statement: Eighteenth district citizens are concerned about jobs, a balanced budget, educating our youth, limiting taxes and preserving the middle class, and those are exactly what I stand for. We must develop our future economy by providing educational opportunities for a highly educated and technically skilled workforce. My 31 years in education and workforce training, coupled with my fiscal conservatism, gives me the knowledge and expertise to accomplish these goals. I know the 18th district; I have lived here my entire life. I share your values, and I would be honored to represent you in Olympia. I ask for your vote.
