Dear friends and neighbors, 

The 2024 legislative session is about a month away, and I am so excited to get started — but first, I want to hear from you. Please reach out with the questions, concerns and issues most important to you and your family. Your contributions of time and effort help me do the best job I can representing our communities’ needs and priorities in the 47th Legislative District.


Below you will find a variety of helpful resources that make it easy for you to be part of the legislative process, from start to finish. These offer you the tools needed to testify in real time on a bill, submit written testimony, contact your elected officials, and track all the policies being considered in Olympia. You can even sign up for free committee notifications on a particular bill of interest and be the first to know each time it takes a step in the legislative process.

Your involvement is critical to the legislative process, and I can’t wait to hear from you. 


Do you know a young person who wants to learn more about what goes on in their state government? 

The Washington State Senate has one of the best page programs in the country, and applications for 2024 are open! This exciting program allows young Washingtonians to get a closer look at the civic process and meet other students from across the state. 

Pages are students aged 14 through 16 who serve for one week during the legislative session. During that week, they spend time in Page School learning about the legislative process while also distributing materials throughout the Capitol campus, assisting legislators, working on the Senate floor, and presenting the colors at the opening of each day’s legislative session. Pages receive pay during their week in Olympia. Scholarships are also available for pages from families with financial need, and housing is available with host families in Olympia. 


Again, please feel free to reach out to my office directly with any questions or concerns.  

Thank you for being a critical part of our team.
