Dear Friends & Neighbors,

Thank you for visiting my website.

Here you will find information about the 4th Legislative District, my committee assignments, my legislative priorities and bills I have introduced in the Legislature. You’ll learn about my top priorities during this year’s legislative session, including criminal justice legislation, a continuing effort to crack down on impaired driving and the Senate’s investigation of the Department of Corrections — to ensure no one in state government, no matter how prominent, can escape accountability for one of the deadliest management failures in the history of our state.

If you have any questions or concerns about the issues facing our state, please contact me or my Legislative Assistant, Janet Voye, via e-mail, the toll free legislative hotline at 1-800-562-6000 or my district office in Spokane Valley at (509) 921-2460.

If you would like to receive my e-newsletter, you may sign up now.

It is my honor and privilege to serve the 4th Legislative District in the Washington State Senate.
