Welcome to my legislative website!

As your state representative and House Republican Leader, 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.

As a whole, House Republicans are focused on championing solutions to reduce your cost of living, make communities safer, promote educational excellence, increase the supply of affordable housing, help those struggling with addiction, and more. Quite simply, we want to fix Washington. I encourage you to sign up for text alerts and follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

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 am here to serve you year-round, so please feel free to contact me anytime with your comments, questions or concerns.

I also welcome you to contact my legislative assistant, Gina Palermo, to set up a time to meet with me at my Olympia office or in district.

It is an honor to serve you.

Fixing the Democrats' failures

Years of hyperpartisanship in Olympia has resulted in a litany of one-sided policies that have had devastating consequences for the people we serve. Washingtonians have been caught up in an avalanche of cascading failures, many of which have been made worse by the Legislature. The catalog of crises Washington faces is unprecedented, which is why our mission as House Republicans is straightforward: Fix Washington. While Republicans may not hold the gavel in Olympia, we will continue promoting a bold agenda that serves as a roadmap for restoring hope, creating a brighter future, and getting our state back on track. We will continue serving with purpose, accountability, and a profound sense of urgency.

Fighting for you and your family

While Republicans may not hold the gavel in Olympia, we will continue promoting a bold agenda that serves as a roadmap for restoring hope, creating a brighter future, and getting our state back on track. We will also continue fighting against misguided policies proposed by the majority that would make existing crises worse. Our task is to serve with purpose, accountability, and a profound sense of urgency as we seek to fix Washington.

Watch: House Republican debate highlights

Three initiatives approved, three will be on November ballot

When the people of Washington sent the Legislature six initiatives to consider, it changed the direction of the legislative session. Republicans immediately embraced the measures and called for prompt public hearings. We were ultimately successful in not only securing public hearings for three initiatives, but also passing them. Initiative 2081 enacts a “Parents’ Bill of Rights,” Initiative 2111 prohibits state and local personal income taxes, and Initiative 2113 restores the ability of our men and women in law enforcement to pursue fleeing suspects. The majority party didn’t hold hearings or take action on the other three initiatives. Initiative 2117 would repeal the Climate Commitment Act and the associated carbon tax, Initiative 2124 would provide an opt-out of the state long-term care program and payroll tax, and Initiative 2109 would repeal the capital gains tax. However, they will be on the ballot in November.
