Dear Friends and Neighbors,

It’s been great to be back in Northeast Washington as the 2024 session has concluded. I am honored to have served you these past years in the state House of Representative in Olympia. But there’s nothing like daily life in our community. I’ve seen so many of you already at school events, the grocery store, and community gatherings. Your words of support have made me a better, more effective legislator. Thank you!

Election-year restrictions begin Monday, May 6. As a result, this will be my last email update to you until the fall, after the general election results have been certified. However, you are still able to contact my office for assistance with state issues, government bureaucracy, or state agencies. We are here to help. We serve you!

As many of you know, this is my last year in the state legislature. Community service is in my family’s blood as we strive to honor the sacrifices of so many who have paid the price for our freedoms and liberties. As I leave the state House of Representatives, I am encouraged by the proposals signed into law originating from my office, many with your assistance and resulting from your ideas:

  • Increased Veterans’ Service Officers (VSOs) to help veterans in rural, underserved areas receive the benefits and support they’ve EARNED!
  • Reducing homelessness in wildfire areas.
  • Ensuring small businesses in rural areas have access to credit for expansion or updating equipment and services.
  • Providing our students more career options with pre-apprenticeships in high school.
  • Capping the price of life-saving insulin. With certain monopolies in the administration and supply of insulin, the price has increased dramatically as profits of multinational companies were prioritized before people (especially children) in need.

Recently, my 7th Legislative District seatmates and I sent our end-of-session mailer. If you haven’t received it yet, it should be arriving in your mailbox soon. In case you missed it, or want to reference it later, you can find that here.

As Floor Leader, chosen by her Republican colleagues, Rep. Maycumber led the fight to get public hearings on initiatives sent to the Legislature by voters.

In closing, many of you have asked the status on the recent initiatives to the Legislature, or shared concerns about the increase in crime, taxes, and state spending. I want to provide you with more information that you can read at your convenience.

  • For more information on the six initiatives sent to the Legislature by voters this year, and the three that passed, click here.
  • For more information on crime statistics in our state, and how they have increased over the past decade, click here.
  • For more information on the nearly $80 billion in tax and fee increases imposed in the last decade by the majority party in Olympia, click here.

Thank you for allowing me to serve you in the state Legislature. While I cannot send you updates until later this fall, I am still your representative until the end of the year. If you need a guest speaker for your civic group or community organization, please let me know. I’d be happy to give an in-person update on the 2024 legislative session as my schedule allows.

It’s been the greatest honor to serve the great people of the 7th District.
