The key to economic development is job creation. That means growing our diverse economic base, supporting our small business owners, and encouraging creativity and innovation. If elected to represent the 46th District, I will passionately promote economic development policies that make Seattle a great place to live for all of us, at all income levels. Specifically, I support:
*a statewide transportation package
*policies that ensure our trade sector remains competitive;
*strong public schools, worker training programs and affordable higher education;
*B&O tax reform;
*and promoting a transparent, customer-oriented regulatory environment.
