General (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)

Washington faces many challenges, especially with our economy. I am working with my colleagues from both parties in the House and Senate to find solutions that will preserve and enhance our quality of life in our state.

As the state faces budget deficits, I believe it is important to prioritize spending while preserving essential services, providing a quality education for our children, and protecting our state's most vulnerable.

It is a great honor to serve the people of the 14th Legislative District.
