1 – I’m a liberal, and I’m proud of that.
2 – I’m from Southwest Washington. And I’m proud of that too.
3 – I am from the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party. I AM A DEMOCRAT.
Being a Democrat from Southwest Washington might not seem like that big a deal. But it is. I am a staunch Democrat, and it often feels like I am a drop of blue in a vast sea of red. But I have been re-elected term after term to represent my constituents in the state legislature, and I take great pride in representing out interests and working collaboratively advance progressive causes.
In the state senate, we haven’t had a great deal of luck getting progressive legislation passed. And that’s because we haven’t elected leaders. But where I have served, in the state House, I have a strong record of proven leadership. Serving as Speaker Pro Tem, I am the only candidate for Lieutenant Governor who has experience sitting on the rostrum and leading a legislative body to get things done. As Lieutenant Governor, I don’t intend to be just another parliamentarian. I intend to get things done.
I will use the office to advance progressive legislation and causes, and I will fight, boldly and proudly, for the people of this great state.
Thank you for visiting my website, and I ask for your vote.
