Statement: At the end of the legislative session, the State Senate proposed a sales tax hike while keeping a tax exemption for out-of-state banks. I decided right then we need more voices for working families and small business owners in the State Senate. I run a small business with my husband. I know how tough it is to make payroll and make ends meet. I’m willing to pay my fair share of taxes but when the State Senate decided to look out for Wall Street while forgetting those of us who work for a living, I decided it’s time for change.
When I’m not working on our business, I’m a paralegal defending injured workers and volunteering as a Guardian ad Litem for Children in foster care. I also serve on the Snohomish County Performance Audit Committee. I’ve knocked on thousands of doors listening to your frustrations. Let’s rebuild this economy by spurring economic development, streamlining regulations and restructuring our business and occupation taxes. Let’s continue to reform public schools so that our kids are ready to compete in the global economy.
