Statement: One-party control in Olympia has created a government that has lost touch with the needs of families. If elected I will continue to give a voice to those who want the opportunity to work and keep more their hard-earned money. Government should live within its means, which is why I strongly opposed the $800 million in tax increase passed this year. I also remain committed to developing a basin-wide solution to protect families from devastating floods. I am asking for your vote to continue our work together to make our state and our communities a great place live and work.
