Welcome to my legislative website! It’s honor to represent my friends and neighbors back home in the Tri-Cities here in the Capitol.

Along with the rest of the ‘mighty 8th’ legislative team, I am working hard with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle and across the rotunda to achieve the best outcomes for our community and state.

On a host of issues, from the high cost of living, to education, energy, housing, and more, hard-working families in the Tri-Cities deserve better.

I am here to serve you. Please, if you have any questions, concerns, comments, or suggestions, do not hesitate to reach out to me. I am your advocate here in Olympia.

My priorities

Making homeownership a reality for working families

As the state with the fewest number of housing units per household in the nation, Washington is in desperate need of more supply. The high cost of housing is draining family budgets, pushing young workers out of state, and hurting our senior citizens. We must recognize the urgency of our housing crisis and unite behind commonsense, pro-housing policies.

Empowering young people through education and employment

Frustrated parents, educators, and advocates have told me how difficult it is to get a job as a high school student in Washington. Even eager 16 and 17-year-olds with technical training are struggling to find employment in the Evergreen State. Our young people deserve better—they deserve the opportunity to thrive, learn, and contribute meaningfully to our state’s economy.

Providing meaningful tax relief for working families

Groceries, housing, child care, and education are more expensive today than they were a few short years ago. At the same time, the state is flush with cash from both traditional and new sources of revenue. House Bill 2040, the Carbon Auction Rebate (CAR), was one of my answers to this problem. The CAR bill would have sent registered vehicle owners in Washington a one-time payment of $214 – or up to $428 per family. Despite the grassroots support for this proposal and the national media attention, the majority party did not give it a public hearing.
