Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I hope this letter finds you well. As we have finally turned the corner on the pandemic, I truly hope we can put our focus on recovery and healing and help move the entire state of Washington forward. 

The 2022 legislative session is now behind us. Please see my previous update for an in-depth recap of the session’s biggest stories. You can also read my end-of-session newsletter by clicking here.

There are still many pressing issues that we need to address with real solutions. That’s why I’ll be busy throughout the interim trying to make our state a better place to live for all Washingtonians, including increasing public safety, making life more affordable for all, and finding solutions for those suffering from homelessness and mental health disorders, among other things.

Thank you for your input, and please continue reaching out

As we turn our attention to the interim, I want you to know that I will continue working for you throughout the remainder of this year and into 2023. Due to election-year restrictions beginning on May 16, I will not be able to send you email updates until after the general election is certified in November. However, I am still your representative, and I will continue to be your voice in Olympia for the 17th District.

You can contact me with questions, concerns, and input, so please continue reaching out. I look forward to meeting with you throughout the interim in person, over the phone, or virtually. The bottom line is I’m here to serve, and I want to hear from you. Thank you for trusting me.

It’s an honor to serve you.
