Looking Ahead – Join me for breakfast or dinner


April 17, 2018

floorGreetings Friends and Neighbors,

Now that the dust has settled on the 2018 legislative session, it is time to get to work. I have several policies that I believe will help our district, but I want to hear from you and get your feedback on what you think I should be working on.

I think that these topics are important for our community:

  • Fixing Sound Transit
  • Car-tab relief
  • Creating an elected Board
  • Property tax relief
  • General citizen oversight and accountability (re-vote for over-budget projects)
  • Creating a New County

I sponsored a bill to separate Seattle from the rest of King County, similar to arrangements of other large cities in the country like Los Angeles. This will benefit suburban areas and Pierce County by giving more of a voice in regional council boards and provide better representation in decision-making.

Here are some successes from this past year:

  • Recreational trail extension while protecting private property rights in Bonney Lake
  • HWY – 410 Bridge Replacement

Join me for breakfast or dinner at locations around the district

I will be holding informal meetings around the district in the coming weeks, promoting small businesses and community outreach. Please contact my office to schedule a time or feel free to simply stop by and chat.

Government guide

We have updated the 31st Legislative District government guide to make it easy for you to contact your federal, state and local officials. It’s a one-stop tool that gives you the phone numbers, emails and information you need for everything from schools and senior centers to members of Congress and the President.
You can access the online version of the guide anytime by clicking here or you can call my office for a physical copy while supplies last.


Due to election year restrictions, I will be limited in how I can communicate with you about what is going on in Olympia. Please be sure to subscribe to my newsletter if you already haven’t. You can also unsubscribe at anytime by clicking here. Feel free to share this with others that live in our district.
