Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Summer is winding down, which means we're getting closer to the Legislature reconvening for the 2020 legislative session in January. Though still a few months away, lawmakers are already beginning to prepare. Last week, legislators were back in Olympia for one of two Committee Assembly periods to take place in the next three months, during which committees met to discuss issues facing our state. I currently serve on four committees – College and Workforce Development; Housing, Community Development and Veterans; Capital Budget; Rules – and I look forward to tackling some of the issues these committees cover during the upcoming session.
Since the Legislature adjourned the 2019 session in April, I've been back home in the 25th District reconnecting with our communities. My travels have taken me all across our district, allowing me to meet with various groups and organizations, and community leaders who, like me, have chosen a career in service.
I've also had the opportunity to tour a number of facilities throughout the state, including a home for supported living, a center for sexual assault survivors, and the Washington State Soldiers Home in Orting.
Representative Kelly Chambers and I were recently given the opportunity to tour the Port of Tacoma, which has a tremendous impact on our local economy and generates more than 40,000 jobs. Watch a behind-the-scenes video of our tour here or by clicking below.
I'd like to thank each and every one of you who has reached out meet with me in district, share ideas, or express concern for the issues that matter to you. Thank you and it is an honor and a privilege serving you.
In order to continue being an effective representative for you, it's crucial that I hear from you.
