Welcome to my legislative website. I am humbled and honored to serve you and our communities throughout the 20th Legislative District.

As an attorney and business owner, but more importantly, a husband and father, I am committed toward a greater future for our families and our state. I believe in community-based solutions to address those “kitchen-table” issues facing us all. This includes bridging the partisan divide and working together to ensure more jobs, quality education, and open and accountable government.

I invite you to join with me to help strengthen our communities and build a better Washington. Please contact my office any time with your thoughts, concerns, questions, and suggestions about your state government.

My Priorities

Providing needed tax relief

Tax relief is about trust. I trust families and small businesses to manage their hard-earned money. That is why I support tax relief and putting money back in your pockets and budgets where it belongs. Unfortunately, the majority party passed the biggest budgets in state history, increasing total state spending to a record $72 billion. While the state sat on a budget surplus, the majority party passed tax increases and fought Republican efforts to provide any form of tax relief to struggling taxpayers.

Ensuring safe communities for all

I share the public’s frustration with the soft approach the majority party is taking to public safety. Instead of choosing criminals over victims, we must ensure you feel safe in your home, at your business, and throughout our communities. Republicans have offered several solutions, but many were rejected by the majority party.

Delivering open, accountable, and transparent government

Washingtonians, of all political persuasions, want government to be open, transparent and accountable, and they’re becoming frustrated with our state’s backsliding on transparency. That's why I am fighting to establish a nonpartisan and independent agency tasked with helping Washingtonians access public records. The people have the right to know how decisions are made in Olympia. Barriers to public records are not only costly to taxpayers – they’re a disservice to good government.

Strengthening families

I believe we must strengthen families and strengthen local communities. Unfortunately, the recent legislative sessions saw the majority party continue policies that weaken and deteriorate families. Instead of encouraging greater parental involvement, the majority party passed legislation that takes away parental rights, involvement, and decision making.
