Welcome! Thanks for visiting my legislative website. Here you can learn more about the work I do for you as a state representative. If you would like to stay connected with me, please sign up for my email updates.
I serve as your legislator in the 25th District, which currently includes Puyallup, Fife, South Hill, Midland and part of Parkland. Here in the 25th District, we value good schools, jobs close to home, and fiscal responsibility. We strongly support our law enforcement professionals and want to create a legal and regulatory environment that will enable them to do their jobs well and keep our communities safe. We believe in compassionate and sensible policies that address the pressing issues of mental illness and drug addiction. I am concerned that Seattle style politics are creeping down into Pierce County, and I am committed to fighting for our common-sense values.
Please contact me if you have suggestions, concerns, or questions. I would love to hear from you! It is my honor to serve as your advocate in Olympia.

We have great teachers and schools in our legislative district. The pandemic and school shutdowns were hard on students, parents and teachers. As students get caught up academically, it’s important for parents to know what is happening in their classrooms and how they can help. Parents expect and deserve transparency. And there are things the Legislature can do to empower parents.Learn more about proposals that empower parents
As many families have struggled over the last two years, state tax collections have remained strong. State lawmakers entered the 2022 legislative session with a $15 billion budget surplus. House Republicans proposed tax relief, including a supplemental operating budget framework that would have reduced the state sales tax. However, Democrats chose to pass a supplemental operating budget with no significant tax relief for struggling families. This was a missed opportunity.Learn more about House Republican tax relief proposals
Crime continues to rise, while sentences for criminals get shorter. At the same time, our law enforcement officers face greater risks with fewer tools at their disposal to prevent and fight crime. Police reform passed by the majority party in 2021 had terrible consequences for public safety. While the Legislature addressed some of these problems in the 2022 legislative session, there was no fix for the vehicular pursuit issue. Senate Bill 5919, which I supported, stalled in the Senate. Republicans offered several solutions to various problems in their Safe Washington Plan.See what my colleagues and I are doing to hold government accountable
One of my priorities in the 2022 legislative session was emergency powers reform. This should not be a partisan issue. Whether the governor is a Republican or Democrat, there needs to be checks and balances and the Legislature needs to have a voice in the process. I co-sponsored House Bill 1772, which would have increased legislative involvement in gubernatorial proclamations relating to a state of emergency. Unfortunately, the majority party has not allowed any bill to pass over the last two years.Learn more about emergency powers reform
