Thank you for visiting my web page. It’s an honor to serve the 13th District in Olympia. Within these pages, you can learn more about me, my legislative priorities and what I’m working on. I also invite you to sign up for my email updates.

Born and raised in Quincy, I know and love the people and way of life of our region. It’s crucial we protect, nurture and grow the economy for us and future generations. That’s why access to water and supporting the agricultural industry are top priorities for me. We need to help, not hinder farmers and ranchers. Additionally, as a parent and long-time Quincy School Board member, I’m committed to expanding and supporting educational opportunities for all the children in our state.

There are many challenges facing our communities. As your state representative, I’ll do my best to find solutions while remaining a powerful advocate for our region’s values. Along with standing against burdensome tax increases, as a strong conservative, I will support public policy that makes the government more efficient and accountable for the money it spends.

Hearing from you helps me do a better job representing our district in Olympia. My door is always open. Please contact me anytime with your comments, questions or concerns about state government-related matters.

My Priorities

Providing tax relief to help struggling Washingtonians

State tax collections continue to exceed expectations. Instead of spending the excess, we need to return some of that money to taxpayers. Washingtonians deserve meaningful tax relief. I support the expansion of the Working Families Tax Credit, lowering sales and gas taxes, and reducing the B&O tax, especially on manufacturers.

Protecting our communities

Communities across the state face challenges caused by rising crime rates. With a focus on accountability and compassion, I support policies that keep our streets and communities safe. The damage caused by the anti-police reforms approved in recent years should be fixed, including allowing police to engage in vehicular pursuits. Other policies I support include funding options for local law enforcement agencies to employ more officers and the recriminalization of hard drugs.

Improving the quality and availability of basic education

We need to put students first. Pandemic-related learning loss, declining reading and math scores, and a lack of flexibility given to parents looking to help their children succeed are all problems in K-12 education. Solutions aimed at improving overall student performance need to be adopted. Policies I support include targeted funding to improve state test scores and the allocation of financial resources to students and their parents looking for more flexibility in their K-12 educational options.
