WHY AN APPLE IN THE NAME?
The apple represents agriculture which I am a proud member, having worked the last ten years improving your voice in Olympia. It represents healthcare, our beautiful outdoors, and a sustainable environment supporting jobs and local business. Last and most important to me, the apple honors our teachers. My father taught 7th and 8th graders for over 30 years. Sitting at the dinner table, he taught me how levies, taxes, unfunded mandates on businesses and the need for more local control of our schools impacted our daily lives. So the apple and all it symbolizes is what has shaped me into who I am today, a proven and effective leader.
