Statement: This is a defining moment for our state: we cannot keep spending more than we bring in. As your representative, I have fought against tax increases and overspending. We must focus on creating jobs by reducing spending and lowering taxes on families and small businesses. In addition, we should reduce the regulatory burdens on businesses and make our children's education the state's top priority.
Now more than ever, we must rise above partisan politics and powerful special interests to fix the problems in Olympia. Please join me in demanding a new direction. Together, we will get Washington back on track!
