Thank you for visiting my website and for your interest in my candidacy for the State Senate.
I have represented the 34th Legislative District in the State House of Representatives since November 2007. I am very pleased to serve the very diverse 34th District, which includes part of Burien, North Highline, Vashon/Maury Islands, and West Seattle.
During the past three sessions I am proud to have worked on legislation to help our community college professors, reform payday lending, protect Maury Island from a multinational mining corporation, and to ban credit scoring in determining the cost of a citizen’s auto or homeowner insurance.
During the 2010 Legislative Session, I also worked to ensure that we closed corporate loopholes in order to raise revenue and that we had a progressive budget, reflecting my commitment to working families, education and the environment.
I am now focused on running for the State Senate in order to continue to serve the 34th Legislative District. Senator Joe McDermott, as you may be aware, is leaving the Senate and is running for the King County Council.
Therefore, I am seeking his Senate seat. My priorities in Olympia will continue to include:
- Protecting the environment,
- Improving education,
- Tackling our transportation problems, and
- Working for affordable housing and family wage jobs.
I am, therefore, asking for your support for my campaign.
I would sincerely appreciate your help and your vote. Contributions can be mailed to
7318 SW 258th Pl, Vashon, WA 98070.
