Why I'm Running: My North Star

As your State Senator I pledge to listen to all viewpoints and my focus will be advancing legislation that shifts power back from the state government and bureaucrats to individuals and small businesses.

My North Star will be Article I Section I of our Washington State constitution:

All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.

With every single decision I make I will be weighing the balance of power. “Does this law shift power to the people or to the government?”

In the last few years, our legislature has shifted entirely out of balance.  It would seem that our legislature has drifted entirely out of touch from the people of this state. One would wonder if they ever rub elbows with the single mom trying to support two children, or the small business owner supporting several families. Do they see the homeless on the streets or have they suffered a robbery or assault? Do they really comprehend the effect of their thousands of bills each session on families and businesses? I do not think so and that is why I am running for WA State Senate.

It is time for a positive change and as your senator I will BE the change you wish to see.
