Friends, neighbors—

Mark your calendars for several town halls happening on Saturday, January 11, 2020! We’ll be having four separate town halls at four different locations throughout the district—all on Jan. 11—so that I can hear from you about your priorities as we approach the 2020 legislative session. Plus, we’re trying something new! To best share with you what kind of policy I’ve been working on with members of our community on issues like health care, human services, education, and transportation, we will be joined by local community leaders at each of these town halls. I’m excited to talk about how we’ve all been working hard together to make the kind of change you want to see.

Let us know if you can make it to one (or two, or all) of the town halls by clicking on the Facebook links below or by replying to this email:

Counting down the days until session…

With just a handful of weeks left until the start of the 2020 legislative session, I have been hard at work with constituents and stakeholders—visiting different parts of our community, having conversations about priorities, drafting legislation. Democracy takes all of us, and I have been humbled time and again by your willingness to give me feedback, get involved, and help me determine the policy changes that will make life better for you, our neighbors, and all Washingtonians as we gear up for session.

A highlight of the past two weeks was my first Higher Education and Workforce Development committee meeting as chair! We had a great work session, which you can watch by clicking here. Also during committee assembly week, we got back into the swing of things in my other two committees: Transportation and Health and Long-term Care. Check out what we talked about in Transportation here, and watch Health and Long-term Care here.

11.4 PO coffee hour

Last week was the last of our 20 interim coffee hours. I had the joy of hearing directly from you about your concerns and ideas and keeping you up to date about my policy plans for next session. Whether or not you were able to join a coffee hour, I hope you can make it to a town hall on January 11. You’ll have the opportunity to ask me anything about what next session will hold, and bring your ideas and input—just in time for session to start on January 13!


My week in Olympia

I believe in transparency, and I want to keep you all informed about what I’m doing on behalf of the 26th District in Olympia. That’s why I’m making a practice of posting my legislative calendar each week on my Facebook page.

Keep in touch

My team and I are eager to hear from you about your priorities. I hope you’ll follow me on Facebook so you can see what we’re up to. And please feel free to reach out anytime at 360-786-7650 or The more we hear from you, the better our work in Olympia can reflect our shared values and goals.

All my best,
