for State Senate, 4th Legislative District


Help us reach our goal


Help us reach our goal


This is a time in our state’s history to tighten our money belt; protect and provide for our most important assets – seniors and retirees; and remember why so many of us live in Washington’s – it’s cool clear water, crisp clean air, and magnificent endless forests. That’s why the 4th Legislative District needs new direction; new vision; and certainly, new representation in Olympia.

Why I'm Running

  • Balance the Budget
  • Seniors
  • Environmental Protection

A fiscally responsible balanced budget should be the first priority of every Washington State legislator.  The health and welfare of the state’s citizens, businesses, and environment depend on it. As a county commissioner, I helped reduce expenditures, rebuild the county budget without tax increases, and helped create Spokane County’s largest reserve. The state doesn’t have a revenue problem; it has a spending problem.

Seniors and retirees have built this community with their property and sales taxes. I know what it’s like to live on a fixed income and continually fight legislator’s who promote and pass bills to allow the state and other special taxing districts to increase these taxes. Senior issues are important to me and are my priority. We need home stability; we need low-cost health care and insurance; we need well-paid, trained care-givers; and those seniors that are at or below the poverty level need some relief from state, local and special district property tax increases.

What we do today to protect our environment will reap unlimited health benefits for our children and grandchildren tomorrow. We are responsible to pass this land on to the next generation better than we found it. After all, we’re just caretakers living on the land for a few generations before the next caretakers move in. The legislature is your generational conscience to keep our promise to our children.
