Welcome to my website! Thank you for taking the time to stay connected with me and our citizen Legislature.

As your state representative, I am committed to finding bipartisan solutions to the most pressing issues facing our community and state. I believe we must make critical reforms to the way state government operates and prioritize state spending to ensure safer communities, more affordable living, excellence in education, and family-wage job growth.

Listening to you is the most important part of my job as your representative. The best ideas come from people in our communities, not from the government. I hope you take the opportunity to get involved in the legislative process by visiting me in Olympia, sending me a letter or email, or testifying on bills. Please contact me to share your thoughts, concerns and questions.

It is an honor to serve you.

My Priorities

Providing tax relief and alleviating consumer inflation

As the ranking member on the House Appropriations Committee and House Republican budget lead, my top priority is introducing legislation that puts you and your family first and addresses our state's most urgent needs. In 2020, I introduced a bill to provide $1 billion in tax relief for Washington's working families. In 2021, I introduced the REAL Recovery for Washington Act. I also helped craft our 2021-23 operating budget framework. Earlier this year, I introduced the SAFE Washington budget framework that would have used our state’s $15 billion budget surplus to provide a permanent 1% sales tax cut while allocating funding for other key priorities. House Republicans will continue fighting for lower taxes for families across the state and insist on policies that produce results, not just more bureaucracy.

Holding government accountable

The budgets proposed by Governor Inslee and the majority party in recent years have failed to include any bold or creative ideas to solve many of Washington's most pressing challenges. In fact, many of these challenges – homelessness, housing affordability, violent crime, police officer recruitment and retention, drug overdose deaths, etc. – have only gotten worse over time. Washingtonians deserve fresh ideas, more accountable leadership, and better outcomes.

Protecting our communities

The SAFE Washington budget framework I introduced in February would have funded police officer signing and retention bonuses, body cameras, and additional basic law enforcement training classes to ensure that Washington no longer ranks last in the nation in officers per capita. We have a public safety crisis in Washington that is only going to improve if we put more police officers on the streets and start cracking down on criminal behavior.

Empowering families and addressing learning loss

Extended school closures during the pandemic stunted the cognitive and social development of a generation of students and exacerbated the opportunity gap between wealthy and poor children. The budget frameworks proposed by House Republicans would have helped remediate the learning loss so many suffered in virtual environments. As a caucus, we also remain focused on increasing transparency and accountability in our K-12 system.
