 MY PRIORITIES

REMOVE BAD LAWS

There are so many bad laws on the books.  Unnecessary bureaucracy that adds costs to building a home, opening a business, or just filling a tank of gas.

I believe the vast majority of people run for office with good intentions.  The problem is that in order to get re-elected, they will pass any legislation without truly understanding the impact that legislation has on everyone in the state.  It might be good for a small group of people, but the negative impacts greatly outweigh any good that came from it.  Now the legislation is on the books, and we the people have to keep paying for it.  The laws of the state of Washington, the Code, hasn’t been revised since the 70’s.  We need to get rid of bad legislation that is hurting everyday citizens and costing us money that could be applied to really fixing the problems of today. 

My campaign is focused on removing those bad laws, and a primary reason for visiting this website is to give us concrete, specific examples of laws in our state that have negatively impacted your family.  Please post your concerns so we can really get after fixing them.  Thank you!

FIGHT CRIME

Holding people accountable to be good citizens only makes common sense.  Treating each other with respect is what common law is all about.  No one is any more or any less important than everyone else.  Rampant shoplifting hurts everyone as the costs of lost goods is passed on to everyone.  We all pay out of pocket in one way or another when crimes are committed, and all we really want is a safe environment to enjoy life and raise our families. 

When groups wanted to reduce School Resource Officers in the Puyallup School District, I led an effort to double the numbers we had to ensure each region within the district had a partner.  We built strong relationships with the Puyallup Police department and the Pierce County Sheriff's department to ensure we were ready for any response.  I slept well at night knowing that local law enforcement felt appreciated, that they understood all possible required response protocols, and would follow up on every lead to ensure our kids were safe.  And they did.

RESTORE HOPE IN OUR COMMUNITIES

We are blessed to live in the most beautiful state in the best country in the world.  I don’t know about you, but lately, I’ve had to turn off the news, frustrated in rising overdose deaths, rising crime rates, and inflation.  Why are we letting this happen?  We can do better.  We must do better.  We owe it to our children to give them the same hope that we grew up with, that anything is possible.

I’m very proud to have been a fighter pilot and have served our nation, but the most important thing I have ever done is raise good-hearted, thoughtful children.  I believe our children and each one of us are capable of exceeding even our own expectations, if our local government can give us all a level playing field where we can thrive, and a helping hand up when we stumble. 

I pledge to utilize the leadership skills, problem solving ability, and experiences gained while serving our country and on the Puyallup School Board and apply them to finding innovative solutions to provide a better future for our families and our state.  I truly understand the great responsibility of representing people, and I would be honored to be trusted to represent you.
