WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING ISSUE FACING VOTERS IN YOUR DISTRICT? Transportation
IF ELECTED, WHAT WILL YOU DO IN THE FIRST SIX MONTHS IN OFFICE TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Work with other eastside legislators to inform the public and to convince the media to report on the problems I describe in my blog.
DO YOU SUPPORT/OPPOSE REFERENDUM 74: SHOULD GAY MARRIAGE BE LEGAL IN WASHINGTON? BRIEFLY, WHY? No response provided.
DO YOU SUPPORT/OPPOSE, INITIATIVE 502 TO MAKE SMALL AMOUNTS OF MARIJUANA LEGAL TO PEOPLE 21 AND OLDER? BRIEFLY, WHY? I would oppose 502 because Marijuana is highly addictive and damages the brain, particularly younger users. See my “Marijuana Risks” on my blog
