My Accomplishments


As Chair of the State Government, Tribal Relations, and Elections Committee and a member of the Ways and Means (Budget) and Early Learning and K-12 Education Committees, I deal with the issues that have the biggest impact on the 22nd District.

My accomplishments include

  • Advocating for cost of living allowances (COLAs) and health benefits for state employees and educators;
  • Gaining long-denied COLAs for PLAN 1 retirees;
  • Passage of the most progressive package of election laws in the nation, laws that ensure access to voting with security and transparency;
  • Working for passage of strong environmental laws, including limits on greenhouse gases;
  • Continued efforts for adequate funding for our public schools and postsecondary institutions;
  • Funding for transportation funding in Thurston County and a feasibility study for passenger ferry service from Olympia to Seattle;
  • Advocating family leave for new parents and those with family health emergencies;
  • Voting to cap the monthly out-of-pocket expenses for insulin at $100;
  • Supporting establishment of the new Office of Equity.

And please vote for Sam Hunt for State Senate.  Thank you.
