Olympia is at a Crossroads

It’s my honor and privilege to ask for your vote again. Thank you for taking the time to read what I have to say. That honor is real, in good times and bad times. Olympia faces many challenges as we navigate simultaneous emergencies of pandemic, climate, opioids, and housing, which create significant economic uncertainties for every resident.

My question is, what can we learn from these crises, while adequately supporting less fortunate neighbors? While complex, I am proud to be a leader in addressing these challenging issues.

We need a just and equitable recovery for everyone. This means listening compassionately during difficult conversations, and acting with courage to ensure that this recovery brings equity and opportunity throughout the community. We can do better. I promise to keep fighting for the success of all Olympia families.

“It takes all of us.”
