Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you find it informative about issues in the Legislature and the work I am doing on behalf of residents in the 15th District. My priorities include: positioning the state for continued economic growth, encouraging water storage for our communities, and continuing what we started with crucial public safety laws.

We also need more health care options that allow for important medical decisions to be made between you and your doctor. One of these options is allowing you to take your insurance with you from one job to another. More choices creates more competition and lower prices for you.

Your input is important as we work to restore economic vitality in our state. Feel free to contact me at any time with your questions or concerns. Thank you for the honor of allowing me to serve and represent you.

My Priorities

Advocating for tax relief

When I came into office in 1999 our state budget was about $20.5 billion. We have more than tripled our spending in about 24 years, and it has more than doubled since Gov. Inslee took office. Despite the record spending and the highest inflation we have seen in decades, no tax relief was provided in the 2022 session. My colleagues and I have advocated for such things as property tax relief, sales tax relief and Working Families Tax Credit to provide some measure of life affordability.

Prioritizing public safety

Republicans offered solutions and provided critical votes in addressing the troubling aspects of the policing legislation passed in 2021 that placed unrealistic standards on law enforcement officials. Reinstating vehicular pursuits when there is reasonable suspicion for arrests must be a priority. On a local level I was to get a proviso in the budget that allows the Department of Commerce to contract with nonprofit organizations in the Yakima Valley to form a community consortium to develop and implement strategies for the prevention of gang violence in Yakima County.

Holding state agencies accountable and enacting emergency powers reform

The governor and his Washington state agencies must be held accountable for their failures. Whether it is cost overruns at the WSDOT or the Employment Security Department's mishandling the fraud cases during the pandemic, public trust must be restored by increasing oversight and implementing reforms with the Legislature's input. The executive branch of our government has operated Washington state under one-person rule and under a state of emergency. Lawmakers must have more input as our state government was not intended to operate this way.
