Welcome!

I was originally elected to serve the 31st Legislative District as a state representative. When Senator Pam Roach was elected to the Pierce County Council, I was honored to be appointed to serve as her replacement in the Senate. My approach to either office is the same.  I am here to serve you.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me anytime with your concerns.  If you are being personally affected by a state agency, I will be glad to help you get the assistance you need. And I’m not afraid to “bang on someone’s desk” (figuratively) if that’s what it takes to get the job done.

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