A candidate for State Senator, Legislative District 26 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election

Statement: My goal is to enable Washington to be prosperous.  A state where businesses succeed and residents can afford to live and safely raise their families. My philosophy is that Government should support its businesses and residents, not unnecessarily restrict and control them.

Washington is richly endowed with resources and industry.  So why is Washington facing unsustainable debt and high unemployment?  This situation was not created overnight.  Every year our elected officials promise the same things: More jobs, better education, and improved health care. As a voter you need to ask yourself have these things improved, or gotten worse?  I offer solutions not empty campaign promises.

I am a strategic thinker. I analyze information, consider potential consequences, and identify workable solutions. I can pinpoint core problems and identify the best course of action.  These strengths enable me to identify opportunities and produce results. I am not seeking endorsements from lobbyists, special interest groups, or political parties.  Tough decisions are needed to reduce government spending and trim non-essential services.  These decisions must not be compromised by special interest agendas.

Please visit for positive solutions.
