Statement: I am proud to represent our 37th District, bringing our unique perspectives to the Washington State Legislature. With your support, I pressed for fairness in market competition for small businesses that sustain our diverse communities. I safeguarded the ability of many unseen workers, like janitors and maintenance staff, to earn a decent living doing honest labor. I defended the civil rights of all students against powerful interests. Most important, I fought to protect our constitutional principle of checks and balances in government. I am proud to serve our communities and ask for your continued support to work on your behalf.
