Statement: If you’re tired of the same old “political machine” and are looking for someone that’s passionate, fair, and resolves conflict, that’s me! I’m a common, union dues paying homeowner and veteran that is ready to work for you in Olympia. As a Corrections Deputy, I know that public safety should never be compromised. When unemployment is near 10%, this is not the time to raise taxes. Jobs should be our top priority. I believe in decreased spending and keeping businesses in Washington. Tough choices have to be made in Olympia next year. No more increases in sales or business taxes.
