Thank you for visiting! Please contact me with any questions.

An important part of being a state senator is communicating with the people I am privileged to represent. Please use the links on this site to learn more about what I’m doing in the Legislature and to share your thoughts.

I’m always open to new ideas and am willing to work with anyone to solve the problems facing our communities. Because ours is a citizen Legislature, people across Washington – such as you – have many opportunities to be a direct part of the lawmaking process.

Give me a call, send me a letter or e-mail, visit me in my office, testify in front of a legislative committee – no matter how you choose to get involved, I want your state capitol to be an open and inviting environment.

My legislative priorities reflect what people across the 18th Legislative District have asked me to do:

  • work to strengthen our economy;
  • protect taxpayers by prioritizing state spending;
  • offer every child an opportunity to succeed scholastically; and
    make sure vital transportation projects are moving forward.

Please contact me, using the information provided, if I can be of assistance or if you would ever like to meet. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
firstnamesmall
