Washington State faces severe fiscal challenges in the immediate future. Now, more than ever, we need strong leaders with proven track records to represent families and micro-businesses of Washington State. This is why I am running to be your representative.
As a micro-business owner myself, former City Council member, and past Special Forces Officer, I understand Washington State will have fiscal challenges. Responding to these challenges and realizing opportunities, will take critical and creative thinking. As a commander in Special Forces and founder of a business, I have learned to do more with less. My experience and training has taught me to absolutely know the purpose of the mission. Knowing the “why” of the mission and defining success, can bring a better solution to accomplish the goal. This is the problem solving approach I bring to Olympia.
I’m looking forward to the campaign and meeting new friends!
