Statement: As a lifelong resident of the 19th district, I have a deep respect for the values that are important to the people of the area.  I have worked hard in the past 3 terms to ensure that our natural resources are protected for our enjoyment and for the jobs they sustain.  My goal is to find the balance between the extremes of issues where the right answers usually lie.  Along with developing policies to create jobs, a priority of mine is insuring that our 4 PUD's can continue to deliver some of the lowest electric rates in the nation.
