I want to represent the people of the 15th District for the common good of our community. We are more polarized then we ever have been in our nation’s history. It should not be about a party affiliation it should be about the people. We need to find positive solutions and work together to achieve our goals in Education, Economic Growth, Healthcare, Climate Change, Immigration Reform and so much more. If elected as your State Senator, I am committed to building bridges to create a better Washington and not erect walls between parties. I am dedicated to the hard working people of the 15th District and Washington State. As a former farm worker I understand hardship and what it takes to succeed. Too many times the public’s voice is not heard, as a former City Councilwomen I strived to be the voice of the people and reflect their needs. Let’s work together and bring about the common good of our community.
My focus is on what is best for the community. That is always where we start—What’s best for the
people? What’s best for the long-term, what do we need in the short-term? We start with the
people because we are our own greatest asset. There is nothing we lack that we cannot provide for
ourselves by working together in an inclusive way.
We have the power to fix anything that might be broken but in order to use that power more of us
have to participate. Decisions are made by those who show up. More of us have to show up. I am
committed to tearing down the walls that separate us and replacing them with bridges that unite us.
We must continue to invest in the wisdom and skills of leaders who promote inclusion, embrace
diversity, and understand that we are all part of a greater community. Leaders must think long-term,
but also understand that their influence is supposed to be temporary. Effective leadership also
means preparing future leaders to take the reins, sooner rather than later.
