On The Issues

Safe Communities

Everyone deserves to feel safe and, actually be safe, in their communities. It is time the Legislature enacts reasonable gun safety laws. It is not rocket science to come up with thoughtful, common sense laws that help protect both our community safety and the right for law abiding citizens to own a firearm. It is simply unconscionable that our children now experience real fear about going to school.

There is a message in these two pictures…Persistence Matters!
I started working on replacing the 520 bridge in 1995 as part of the first Regional Design Committee. After I went to the Legislature I worked for several years on the team negotiating final legislation and funding that actually got the job done. It should not take that long but the lessen learned here is never give up.

Now we have to keep the pressure on to complete the corridor from Montlake to I-5…Persistence Matters!

Jobs and Economy
As a small business owner, I know what it’s like to watch the bottom line. I’ll work with employers large and small to protect existing jobs and bring new jobs to our region in growing areas like alternative energy, biotechnology, biofuels and emerging industries.

Parks & Open Spaces
From Lake Washington to the Cascade foothills, our quality of life is defined by our region’s natural beauty. I understand that preserving our quality of life requires a thoughtful balance between respecting individual property rights and the need to assure healthy neighborhoods, open space, and clean air and water. I’ll work with local government—and landowners—to assure that we protect it both rights and the environment.

Children are our most precious resource. As a former teacher, I’ve supported pay raises for teachers and funding to lower class sizes. I’ll make sure we invest in our schools and teachers—not school bureaucracy—and assure that every student that wants to attend college in Washington has access to the school of their choice.

Health Care
I’m fighting to make sure everyone has access to affordable health care. I voted to cover all kids by 2010 and I’m working to help businesses provide coverage to employees. I’ve already helped make prescriptions more affordable for seniors.
