My top priorities are:
- Lower Taxes (I will work hard to eliminate wasteful spending)
- Safe Communities (I fully support law enforcement and first responders)
- Tough on Crime (My first bill will be to add 5 years jail time to anyone who uses a gun in a crime)
- Safer Schools (Provide additional staff to deal with students in crisis)
I believe heroes should be honored, not fired, and children belong to their parents and not the state. I was raised in Spokane by a single parent on public assistance and I understand the impacts inflation has on the family. After graduation from Ferris, I married my high school sweetheart and joined the Air Force where I learned the importance of community, love of country and hard work. As the current 4th District Representative, I have a solid conservative voting record with a focus on lower taxes and a government that works for the people.
