Dear Friends and Neighbors,

It’s hard to believe a month has already passed since the Legislature adjourned this year’s session.

Remember, I work for you year-round – not just when I am in Olympia. Please don’t hesitate to contact my office (360-786-7634) if you have any questions or concerns, or if you need assistance in dealing with a state agency.

My heart and prayers go out to the victims, families and community members affected by the Oso mudslide. The New York Times published an article about the mudslide a few weeks ago and it includes an interactive before-and-after map that shows how widespread the devastation truly is; you can view the map HERE.

Below I provide an overview of the governor’s budget vetoes and offer an excerpt of an editorial I wrote for the Columbian. Click HERE to read more.
