Many thanks to the League of Women Voters of Pullman for hosting the HD09 candidate forum at Neil Public Library yesterday evening. I enjoyed the opportunity to share my priorities and vision for our district. Lots of good questions about trails, healthcare, climate change, taxes and school safety.

Meanwhile, having worked in an organic solar cell research lab, I understand the danger that anthropogenic climate change poses to our district, and I will fight to ensure our state continues to lead the nation in transitioning to a clean, low-carbon renewable energy economy.
Our grassroots campaign for State House is funded by real people who live right here in Eastern Washington, and I am humbled to have received the endorsement and support of local firefighters, plumbers and steamfitters, laborers, electrical workers, teachers and para-educators, university professors, students, small business owners and many many others.
