Welcome to my website! And thank you for your interest in the legislative process.

It is an honor and privilege to serve the people and communities of the 26th District. Together, we have accomplished a lot in the Legislature. However, we know more work remains to be done in the areas of affordability, public safety, education and state government accountability. I remain focused on these issues and others.

As a state representative, my views are shaped by life experiences and the sentiments of my constituents. In every vote I take, I put people before politics. No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, your opinions and concerns are important to me – and I encourage you to share them.

Please feel free to call, email or send me a letter anytime. I look forward to hearing from you.

My Priorities

Fighting to end the Tacoma Narrows Bridge Tolls

Since taking office in 2015, I have worked to provide true and meaningful toll relief to Tacoma Narrows Bridge commuters. They were told when the new bridge opened in 2007 that the $729 million structure would be paid off and the tolls removed by 2030. A new report from the Washington State Transportation Commission suggests that bridge operation cost increases may now push tolls into 2033 and beyond. That is unacceptable. I'm fighting to end the tolls for our 26th District commuters.

Creating clear pathways for a better, more reliable ferry system

The state's ferry system is a mess. We don't have enough ferries to service the demand. And the governor's tunnel vision for hybrid electric ferries has slowed delivery and resulted in skyrocketing costs. Washington commuters deserve a reliable state ferry system. Our ferries are the lifeblood of our local economy in the 26th District. It is imperative the problems that plague our ferry system are fixed.

Restoring balance and trust to state government

The power of the people took center stage during the 2024 legislative session as hundreds of thousands of Washingtonians signed six initiatives that were delivered to the Legislature for consideration. I strongly supported these measures and pushed throughout the 2024 legislative session for their immediate consideration. Three of those initiatives passed the Legislature. Three will be on to the November ballot.
