Links are only provided where we have information. The first link is a report of all issues and questions made available to the candidates.
General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
My efforts will be focused on balancing the state budget without raising taxes. The key to getting Washington back on the road to economic recovery is to get the unemployed working again. That means reducing unnecessary regulations and helping foster the full potential of businesses to be successful.

We must support good teachers who can help young people receive the best possible education.

With extensive experience in law enforcement, I am also committed to stronger public safety laws and keeping criminals behind bars.

In addition, I will carry out the long-standing tradition of providing a strong voice for southeast Washington on the House Transportation Committee.

I am honored and excited to be working for you and representing the 8th District.
