Washington State Senate District 29

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 Senate also has the exclusive power to confirm certain gubernatorial appointments. 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.

Mail-in voting encourages and expands voter participation in our elections and strengthens our democracy. We however lost the social interaction of the polling station.
I have a long legislative history of defending Washington women's access to contraception and abortion. Pro Choice
We must first recognize our need to address climate change and secondly to help families and businesses in this transition to a carbon free economy.
We must insure that all areas of our community have access to transit services. This means that we must support transportation budgets which expand transit services.
I am s strong supporter of rapid and supportive housing options such as tiny houses. We must also expand access to housing vouchers to insure affordability.
I support this goal and believe that it can be achieved by lowering the age for Medicare.
