Why I'm Running

"Because as a proud educator, coach, adviser, and union representative in Washington for 12 years I have fought for lower class size and the people of this state passed it… years ago. Yet the legislature has not followed the people's will and this coming year the Puyallup School District is staffing secondary classes at 38 students per class again.

Because more and more of my students and their families are becoming homeless and sleeping in their cars even though they work full time jobs.

Because law enforcement is no longer calling them lock down drills, or active shooter drills, but active killer drills and that should terrify everyone."
