A candidate for State Representative Pos. 1, Legislative District 40 in the 2010 Washington General Election

Party: Democrat

On this race:

Elected Experience: President, Anacortes School Board (two terms presiding); leading her school district to more efficiency, better student scores, while also passing local levy during the recession.

Other Professional Experience: Shell Oil Company, Financial/Accounting Departments Citicorp Executive Development Center, Senior Financial Analyst, then Operations Manager

Statement: Life is about playing well with others - something the legislature has forgotten. I know how to work with others. I have the proven leadership skills to make the tough choices necessary to work within the budget. I offer what Olympia needs: negotiating skills, putting education first, and experience keeping costs down. Endorsements: League of Education Voters, American Federation of Teachers.

I'm a hard-working mom and elected official with a lifetime of experience working with people to get the real work done. I have strong Democratic values, but partisanship has gone too far: we need to get things moving again.
