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.

My Priorities

Cleaning up Puget Sound, improving water quality, protecting salmon

As the ranking Republican on the House Environment and Energy Committee, I have taken the lead to offer commonsense solutions to clean our waterways and protect salmon in Puget Sound. While the governor's focus has been solely on improving air quality though greenhouse gas reductions, another key component of a sustainable environment is being ignored - Washington's water quality. My House Republican colleagues and I believe water pollution is a huge problem for our state that has not received the attention it deserves. We are working to change that and to protect our salmon by cleaning up Puget Sound.

Tax relief and affordability

Inflation is running at a 40-year high. Rising food and fuel prices threaten many Washington families. Yet, the majority party continues to raise your taxes. making life in our state more difficult and unaffordable. Implementation of the governor's Climate Commitment Act (cap-and-trade program) has boosted fuel prices by more than 50 cents a gallon in Washington state. And the majority party's policies are forcing energy prices and home construction costs even higher. With a $3.3 billion surplus over the next four years, now is the time for tax relief! My Republican colleagues and I are fighting to fix Washington. That includes advocating for property tax relief, B&O tax relief for small businesses, and more affordability and certainty in job creation and housing construction, and to keep your costs down.

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.
