I believe in the people of the 35th District and that, together, we can do amazing things for our communities and state.

As your state representative, it’s my job to be your advocate. That’s why I continue to focus on standing up for victims and survivors of crime; ensuring our students receive a quality education that sets them on a path to meaningful employment; promoting living-wage jobs; protecting your individual, parental, and property rights; and fighting for the needs of our youth, disabled, and elderly. I am in your corner!

I currently serve as the assistant ranking member on the Community Safety, Justice, and Reentry Committee. I am also a member of the Local Government and Transportation committees. In addition, I serve as the House Republican Whip to help lead the charge for a better, safer, and more prosperous Washington.

Your involvement is key for me to continue being an effective voice for you in Olympia. My door is always open, and I appreciate your emails, phone calls and letters.

Thank you for allowing me to serve you.

My Priorities

Fighting for victims and survivors of violent crimes

No one should ever be the victim of sexual abuse or violence. That’s why I’ve made it my focus to stand up for victims and survivors of crime. Protecting vulnerable people from predators and punishing bad actors for their offenses is one of my top priorities.

Prioritizing public safety

Crime is surging in many communities and it must be addressed. Prior to the 2022 legislative session, Republicans introduced the Safe Washington Plan – which included my retail theft legislation (House Bill 1656). The plan focused on supporting law enforcement, preventing crime, and helping victims. It also sought to fix the disastrous police reform bills passed by Democrats in 2021 that made communities less safe. While progress was made in fixing some of these problems in 2022, more work remains to be done.

Empowering parents and students

As parents, students and teachers address learning loss caused by the pandemic and shutdown of our schools, it has never been more important for parents to know what is happening in their children’s classroom. I believe transparency in our education system empowers families and helps to build trust. We all need to come to together to ensure our students are getting the support they need to be successful in school and life.

Holding the governor and state agencies accountable

It is important for the Legislature to hold the governor and state agencies accountable for their results. We have seen too many high-profile failures in state government that have negatively impacted the lives of Washingtonians. If we are going to restore balance and trust in state government, the Legislature also needs to pass emergency powers reform. For two years, Republicans have introduced common-sense proposals that would give state lawmakers – and the people they represent – a greater voice during states of emergency. Despite bipartisan support of bills, Democratic leadership prevented anything from passing.
