Every one of our neighbors ought to have the support they need to be successful, and that starts by listening to and acting on the needs of vulnerable and marginalized communities. In Olympia, I’ve sponsored multiple bills to support at-risk youth, including those who are in foster care, experiencing homelessness, or suffering from challenges with mental health or addiction. In addition to growing our efforts to provide housing stability, it’s clear we need improved services to help get homeless and housing-unstable members of our community back on their feet. I also believe that healthy communities begin with a healthy environment. Through the prism of environmental justice, I’m looking forward to further developing opportunities to address climate change, reduce pollution, and create renewable energy jobs.
Together, we can build a 30th District with great schools, housing security, a healthy environment, and equitable opportunity for all.
