Welcome to the 2015 Legislative Session!

Here you’ll find information on the 26th Legislative District, legislation I’ve sponsored and co-sponsored, press releases, videos, contact information and much more.

We have many challenges before us in the Legislature as we work to preserve and improve our state’s quality of life.

As our state faces a challenging budget year, I believe it is especially important to protect taxpayers while preserving services for our state’s most vulnerable population.

Among my many priorities as your state Senator, I’m working for you to:

  • improve our local transportation system and ensure a reliable, affordable ferry service;
  • fully-fund basic education and prepare our students for a competitive workforce;
  • refine the Growth Management Act to make it work better for our local communities;
  • support our veterans and local military operations; and
  • stimulate our economy, create new jobs, and support and strengthen local businesses.

Please contact my office should you have any questions, comments or ideas about state government. It is a great and humbling honor to serve as your state senator.



Thank you for visiting! Please contact me with any questions.
