The Issues
Through my experiences managing and leading people and projects, I know that nothing is accomplished without listening to all and working together. I’m committed to working on the following issues as your State Representative:

Education Read More
Environment Read More
Economy Read More
Freedom Read More

Education is the paramount duty of the state – and my number one priority. As a parent and President of the Richland School board, I have worked hard to help our schools deliver an outstanding education for our children.

We must find better ways to spend education dollars. We need to continue to improve our schools while also embracing student-centered alternatives like apprentice programs, skills training and online learning to prepare our children for the 21st century.

I have been a leader in statewide efforts to improve schools, including fighting for local control of schools, removing the rigid tests required by the federal government, and giving more control to parents and teachers. I will continue this leadership and fight for your children’s future as a state legislator.
Our district is home to the Hanford Nuclear Reservation which was critical in ending World War II and the Cold War. Cleanup of the millions of gallons of high level nuclear and other legacy waste issues must continue as a state priority to protect our region for our children and their children.

Washington has worked hard to achieve a balance of “green” energy sources, including hydropower, solar, wind, and nuclear power. I will work to ensure we account for impacts to local businesses and private property rights as we continue to balance growth with protection of the environment.
As the economy recovers, we need to ensure that we provide the structure needed so that small businesses can continue to grow and that our area provides opportunities for all. State government needs to show the same fiscal responsibility we all do in our homes and small businesses. I will work to ensure your tax dollars are used wisely and will continue to work to protect taxpayers.
When I entered the United States Navy I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic and that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same. I will continue to strive to defend the constitutional rights and civil liberties of our citizens. America is the land of freedom and opportunity, and that should apply without regard to race, creed, color, gender or sexual orientation.

I pledge to work for you and NOT for special interest groups or partisan politics. Together we will make our community better!
