Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting my Web site. Please check often for updates on my efforts on behalf of 17th District residents and Clark County.

If you have any questions or concerns about the issues before the 2015 Legislature, please contact me via e-mail, the toll free legislative hotline at 1-800-562-6000 or my Olympia office at (360) 786-7632.

My legislative assistant, Matt Hunter, will be happy to help you obtain the information you need and get your messages to me.

As ever, I will continue to oppose higher taxes, help pass tougher laws to keep criminals off our streets, improve our transportation system, and guard against further attacks on your private property rights. It is my honor and privilege to serve the 17th Legislative District in the Washington State Senate.

Your comments, ideas and questions are always welcome.
