It starts again. I have been profoundly honored to serve the 48th District since 2002. In 2010 I was fortunate to be elected by my peers to be the chair of the Appropriations committee, responsible for writing the state budget. In that job I’ve been able to continue my work improving school funding. This year I’ve been appointed to the Article IX subcommittee, responsible for communicating with the Supreme Court on our school funding responsibilities as part of the McCleary case.

You can see my long history of observations on legislative issues on my blog site The list to the right shows the last 5 or 10 posts, but the full site is much richer. I reserve this site for more political posts and for the campaign.

I value your support and urge you to “like” my face page – again available on the right.

Of course, most political campaigns run on money and volunteers. Both are incredibly valuable and I’d love your support. The big red buttons at the upper right are how you support the campaign with money or volunteer time. Competitive races on the Eastside cost over $200,000, so I need to start building up the bank account now to be prepared for the fall. I appreciate your support. The maximum contribution is $1,900 per person, or $3,800 per couple, but of course I value all contributions, and the number of donors is sometimes just as important as the amount.
