Friends, neighbors –

Our neighbors have been sending in so many thoughtful questions to my office – many about the crisis in Afghanistan, about next steps in our nation’s work to overcome COVID, about the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework.

Because we’ve heard from so many of you about federal issues, we’re going to adjust the plan for today’s Virtual Community Coffee Hour. Instead of our Zoom, I hope you’ll join me in attending Congressman Derek Kilmer’s Facebook Live Town Hall tonight at 5:30pm PST. Tap the image BELOW to tune in:

Congressman Kilmer and our other federal partners are best positioned to help answer those questions, get your thoughts and ideas, and bring your voice to the other Washington. I hope to see you at tonight’s Facebook Live Town Hall to connect there.

Our next *in-person* coffee hour is out on the Key Peninsula at Gateway Park – you can click here to RSVP or email our office at We will also have another virtual chance to connect on Thursday, September 23rdclick HERE to get the Zoom link.

As always, I am eager to hear from you about your priorities and to bring your thoughts and concerns with me to Olympia – your voice is with me in committee, in leadership meetings, on the Senate floor. Easy ways to reach me include FacebookInstagram, and Twitter – where you can shoot me a message and follow along to see what we’re up to. You can also reach out anytime at 360-786-7650 or

The more we hear from you, the better our work in Olympia can reflect our shared values and goals.

All my best,
