Statement: We need jobs in Washington, and a budget that reflects the needs of We the People, spending your tax dollars wisely, on things made or grown locally. We need tax structures that protect Small Businesses and Family Farms against unfair competition from multinational corporations. We must build a Sustainable Economy, taking the lead in development and deployment of renewable energy systems - solar, wind, tidal - technology that will grow jobs, and reduce dependance on fossil fuels. I will fight for Washington’s future - for my kids future - to keep our state a wonderful place to live, work and play.
