Welcome to my legislative website!

I was elected as your State Representative in November and I have been appointed as your Senator to fill the vacancy created when Senator Pam Roach was elected to the Pierce County Council.  You elected me to represent the people of my district and I need to have your feedback during this difficult session.  Please contact me with your problems and concerns about how our government functions and if you are personally affected by a state agency.  As your Senator, I will be glad to “bang on someone’s desk” (figuratively), should you have a problem with a State agency.

My legislative priorities are: first protecting taxpayers; reducing the size and scope of government, prioritizing state spending, protecting those most vulnerable, reducing the burdens on our teachers, and strengthening parental rights. I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and the sanctity of human life.  I invite your feedback on issues that concern you and your family and to let me know what you think.

Por favor, no dude ponerse en contacto conmigo en español y me avisan si le gustaría recibir mi boletín en español.
