Dear Friends and Neighbors,
One of the things I enjoy most about being a state representative is the opportunity to meet and talk with you. Serving constituents is, and always will be, my office's number one priority. I welcome your letters, emails, and calls. When contacting me, please list your address so that we can identify you as a constituent and prioritize our responses to you.
One of the privileges of being your representative is the many visits people make to Olympia to share their ideas in person. I thought it would be fun to share photos from some recent visits, which include students, teachers, firefighters, and city officials. If you are planning a trip to Olympia in the next few weeks, please contact my office and set up a time for us to meet.

For those of you who may not be aware, the 12th Legislative District includes Chelan and Douglas counties and parts of Grant and Okanogan counties. Here is a link to the district map. This area includes the Wenatchee Valley, Lake Chelan, Leavenworth, and Methow Valley, making this region one of the best and most beautiful destinations for tourism and outdoor recreation. We also have many agricultural areas and natural resources. It's truly a privilege and honor to live in and represent such an incredible district.
