The best quality of the 39th District is its people. I am a native of Snohomish County and I know the hard-working people from all over the area. From the small business leaders to risk-taking entrepreneurs to the farmers, they make the communities of our district truly vibrant and livable.
My top priority as a legislator is to improve Washington's economy and encourage job growth. I'm working to preserve the jobs we already have and attract more employers. More jobs mean a better outlook for working families.
Also, the amount of revenue available to pay for public services is predicated on having a strong economy, so legislation that's good for Washington employers, especially the Main Street, mom-and-pop businesses that employ the majority of our residents, is also good for our state's education, health care and transportation systems.
I'm honored to work on behalf of the people of Northwest Washington.
