Welcome to my Web site! Here you will find information about our district, the legislation that I have sponsored and co-sponsored, news releases, video updates, and much more. I have spent a lot of time with citizens around the district in the last year. They were clear in their message. Businesses and families in Washington cannot survive any more taxation and unsustainable budgets coming out of Olympia. We need to make sure people have jobs, keep our tax rates low, show fiscal responsibility with the state budget, allow businesses to be productive without fighting excessive regulations and provide a quality education for our children. Throughout the session, I encourage you to keep in touch whenever you have questions, comments or an idea to share. Please call, email me, or send a letter. My door is always open, and I appreciate hearing from people in the 17th District. I am grateful and honored the people of our district have sent me to Olympia as their state representative.
