I am known for standing up for my District and fighting against special interests. Whether it’s against leaders of my own party, labor bosses or Seattle-centric legislation, I have always put YOUR NEEDS FIRST.
As the longest-serving member of the Washington Legislature, I am one of the last remaining Democrats to represent a rural district. I remain an independent voice for our rural values — fiscal responsibility, job creation, Second-Amendment rights and a minimum of government interference in our lives. I am dedicated to bringing private sector jobs back to our communities, improving our schools, and passing sustainable budgets that do not require tax increases.
My commitment in politics is very clear: it’s to you! I have always believes in the interests of my district are more important than the interests of any political party. No matter what the issue is, I follow your lead.
