Due to misguided past policies, crime has become one of our region’s biggest challenges, threatening our sense of safety and impacting the economic well-being of our families and businesses. To address this important issue, we need strong, proven leaders who can help us get back to basics in how we address crime, and guide and fund our criminal justice system.
As a business owner, recent City Council member, and former Special Forces officer, my leadership experience and training have prepared me well for the challenges we face. With your support, I look forward to representing you in Olympia.
