What a night! I am humbled and honored to return as an elected senator to the Washington State Legislature with nearly 70% of the vote! My work representing the wonderful people of the 48thLegislative District has been on-going even through this election. And there is more work to be done, so it’s a good thing I have a solid work ethic, born out of family values around education, giving back to your community, and caring for your fellow human, that have carried me throughout my entire life. As my dad used to say, ‘the time is going to go by anyway, you might as well be doing something constructive.’ I can’t think of anything more constructive than working on the issues that my fellow constituents care about – excellent quality education; an efficient and multi-modal transportation system that gets folks where they want and need to be safely and without delay; healthcare for all; and a public infrastructure bank, to name just a few. Please come and visit me, whether here in the District or in Olympia!
