“As Kirkland Mayor and years as a councilmember I have made it a priority to involve neighbors in decisions that affect their lives and families. Through this process of truly listening I have seen firsthand how coming together and considering all points of view leads to better policies. I want to take this type of leadership to the State House of Representatives and would be honored to have your support.”

-Amy

 

Finding Affordable Housing Solutions

New growth in our region brings wonderful opportunities, and new challenges. Amy will build on her housing affordability leadership, and is devoted to increasing housing options and continuing to provide innovative and affordable housing choices for young and working families, seniors, and the vulnerable.

Protecting our Communities and our Environment

We all have a right to safe schools, safe communities, and safe gathering spaces. Amy supports raising the purchasing age of semi-automatic firearms, enhanced background checks, and other provisions to reduce preventable gun violence. Amy will also prioritize protecting our environment. She will support legislation to address climate change and carbon reduction.

Leveling the playing field

We must restructure our unfair, regressive tax code. No more talk about an unconstitutional income tax—Amy will look at smart reforms that reduce the burden on lower income families and require a fair share from the wealthiest in our state. She will also support Washington small businesses. As a business owner, Amy is acutely aware of the barriers small businesses face. She will work to ensure a healthy balanced business climate, and fight to achieve workplace equity for women and other underrepresented communities.
