Thank you for visiting my website. I’m extremely excited to announce my candidacy for the State House again this year. My commitment to service and community is rooted in my own experience as a nurse, mom and grandmother of five, and 45 year marriage to a career Air Force vet. We made ends meet by living frugally, and planning for the future. That’s the same approach I bring to Olympia.
This past year I have made making government more efficient a top priority. I have worked to close tax loopholes for special interests and as chair of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Health & Human Services she has saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars – dollars that have been directed to important services for families, veterans and our schools.
Democrats and Republicans need to come together to concentrate on the basics. I have knocked on thousands of doors in my community and I understand the priorities and concerns of our neighbors. It is my hope that I can lend my experience to change the dialogue and focus on our shared priorities —from education funding to workforce training and help for small business we need to continue to move our state forward.
Please visit here often to get up to date news from my campaign. I plan once again to be out visiting voters on their doorsteps to hear new ideas, questions and concerns so we can make our state government work for you. Together we can make a difference.
