Welcome to my legislative website! I am honored and humbled to have the opportunity to fight for you and our rural way of life in the state Legislature.

My family has worked the ground we live on for generations. I know what it’s like to have dirt under my nails and mud on my boots at the end of the day. My job as your state representative is to take my passion for this land and combine it with the work ethic exemplified by so many of you and fight for our collective priorities, regardless of what’s publicly or politically popular. Please know that the character of our land, the importance of our children and their future, and the values we hold dear are all at the forefront of every decision I make on your behalf in Olympia.

Our state faces many serious challenges. But I will never back down from fighting for you and working hard for a better future for all of us, our children, and our grandchildren. Please feel free to contact me with your suggestions, issues and concerns. Thank you for the honor of serving you in the Legislature.

My Priorities

Tax relief and affordability

Inflation is running at a 40-year high and increasing food and fuel prices threaten many Washington families. With a $15 billion surplus over the next four years, now is the time for tax relief! Instead, the majority party has continued to raise your taxes. Many of my colleagues and I are fighting for property tax relief, B&O tax relief for small businesses, and more affordability and certainty in job creation and housing construction.

Keeping our communities, families, and schools safe from violent predators

Washington ranks last in the nation in terms of the number of police officers per thousand people. The recent Defund the Police movement has brought more uncertainty for law enforcement officers and made it difficult to recruit new ones. In addition, these policies have made us all less safe as violent crime and property theft continue to increase. We need to change direction by holding criminals accountable and respecting the men and women who lay it all on the line to protect our neighborhoods.

The Snake River Dams are a vital transportation corridor and provide renewable energy

The governor and others continue to fund studies focusing on ways to remove the Snake River Dams. Our local, rural economy and so many livelihoods depend on the dams - you can't replace their value with windmills and solar panels! We MUST defend this vital infrastructure. It is so important for national food security and our rural economies. Our farmers and communities depend on this transportation corridor.
