Thank you for visiting! Please contact me with any questions.
I was recently appointed to fill the vacancy of retiring state Senator Barbara Bailey. I’m honored to have been chosen by the county commissioners from Island, Skagit and Snohomish counties to fill the remainder of the term and will work hard to represent you in the state Capitol.
I’m dedicated to bringing civility back into our political process. As a freshman Senator, I’m not under the impression I’ll be able to change the world in the short legislative session. However, my experience as a farmer, business owner and family man will be a voice of reason and practicality in Olympia.
It is an honor serving you. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have about your state government.
Your 10th District state Senator.
Those who receive my regular Smarter Government Report e-newsletters have access to inside information straight from the state capitol, often before members of the media have a chance to report it. Sign up today, and you can take the next step toward participating directly in your state government.
I'm Here to Serve You
A representative government only works when those represented take and active part in the process. I'm here to serve you, and your direct input helps me do my job better. Please don't hesitate to contact me via e-mail, phone or by mail, or make an appointment to see me in person. I look forward to hearing from you!
