As your state representative, being chosen by my friends and neighbors to represent them in the state House has truly been a high honor.

I have lived and worked in Spokane County most of my life and have seen the best Spokane County has to offer. However, recent increases in property and violent crime in our region are concerning. In addition, the state seems to have an endless appetite for your tax dollars. Washington state must live within its means.

Additionally, improving our business climate correlates with our ability to curb taxes and prioritize spending. Jobs follow business growth and with one of the best school districts in the state and several institutions of higher learning and training in Spokane, we have a ready source for a skilled workforce. As my wife, a middle school teacher, constantly reminds me, we must continue our commitment to education as we get our economy moving.

I invite you to contact my office with any concerns, suggestions or questions. Thank you for the honor of serving you in Olympia.

My Priorities

Providing tax relief to Washingtonians

The Legislature should pass fiscally responsible and sustainable budgets. When they have the opportunity, like this year when the state had another budget surplus, state lawmakers should also provide tax relief to Washingtonians. Unfortunately, once again, it didn’t happen when people needed it the most.

Strengthening communities through public safety

Crime is rampant in our communities. Many of the stories are heartbreaking. Criminals feel emboldened while law enforcement has fewer options to pursue them. Several solutions were proposed in the previous legislative session, but very few passed. More must be done in the Legislature to prioritize public safety, support law enforcement and prevent crime.

Empowering families

Transparency is important to ensure trust in our K-12 education system. Parents deserve a say in their children’s education and have a right to know what it being taught in their classroom. When families are empowered, students are successful.
