Thank you for visiting my re-election website.
It has been an honor serving as a southwest Washington state representative since 2002 and the 20th District since 2013.
As you know, protecting taxpayers and creating jobs has been of key importance to me. As the assistant ranking member on the Finance (tax policy) Committee, I have worked hard to protect against tax increases, provide tax relief, and encourage job growth. As a member of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee, I put my forest management education and experience to good use to make sure we keep forest land growing trees and farmland growing crops, instead of being paved with concrete and asphalt. As ranking member of the Transportation Committee, I am working hard to make your gas tax and vehicle registration fees go further - and go for roads. DOT needs to become more responsible with the dollars you already send them before you send them any more.
As your state representative, I’ll continue to voice your concerns and work to address the issues you face every day. But it will take your help – and your vote – to keep me working for you!
Thank you for your support.
