Washington State House District 25 Pos. 2

During legislative sessions, the Legislature is called upon to: enact or reject legislation affecting public policy in the state; provide for the levy and collection of taxes and other revenue to support state government and assist local government; and appropriate funds for these purposes. The House also has the exclusive power to bring impeachment proceedings. Although laws are enacted only when the Legislature is convened in formal session, policy issues and the general operation of state and local government are under continuous review by legislators serving on permanent and interim study committees.

I am a PCO with the local Democratic party and very involved in local politics. I am also an elected board member of my church and understand what it means to be a part of a corporate body responsible for making decisions that will impact the local community. As a working person and a small-business owner, I know how vital it is for working people to be represented in Olympia. Politics should be about making the lives of everyday people better, and those working people need an advocate who will work to enact policies that effect positive change.
Our current voting system is one of the best in the nation. Mail-in voting is safe and secure, and it guarantees the most accessibility possible for our citizens. We also offer ways for voters to cast their ballots in person at any county polling location on election day if they so desire. This system is an example of true universal suffrage, which is guaranteed by the Constitution. Any attempt to restrict voting is a violation of the Voting Rights Act and illegal.
I will vote to protect women’s health rights, especially through the prevention of mergers between religious hospitals with secular and public facilities.
Climate change is the most serious existential threat that we face today. I believe in a whole-kitchen-sink approach to dealing with the issue. I believe we must invest in safe nuclear power so it can become a bridge to green energy solutions of the future as we transition away from fossil fuels. I also believe that workers shouldn't be left behind on this issue, and these future jobs should be green union jobs.
I believe we need significant investments in public transportation all over the state. A comprehensive investment in rail or light rail in urban areas would be a great equalizer, providing accessibility and opportunities for outlying communities. There are also many underserved rural communities that would be better served by excellent public transport. The positive effects are well worth the investment.
I believe in a housing-first policy to address homelessness. No means testing, no barriers—just get people off the streets and into safe homes or apartments. I favor the Houston, Texas, model, which had an 85% success rate of keeping people in housing. We also need to make it impossible for large corporate buyers and Wall Street hedge funds to buy homes in WA state, as they are directly responsible for the unaffordable housing and rents we are experiencing today.
I completely support universal healthcare. Universal healthcare will drive down costs for everyone, lifting millions out of poverty and providing vital services to underserved communities and the middle class. I support a currently circulating referendum that will put universal healthcare on the ballot. We need to guarantee the basic human right of healthcare is available to all.
