Statement: As a fourth generation Guemes Island native, I'm proud of taking locally grown values to Olympia.  It's been a privilege representing my home town community and serving you in Olympia. During my time in office, I've challenged Olympia to think outside the box - particularly on job creation, ferry funding and clean energy.  

The fight hasn't been easy. Together, we've made progress, but our work isn't over. I'll continue to challenge all special interest groups for laws that create jobs, clean, affordable energy and tougher privacy protections.
