The 43rd District is ground zero for our transportation infrastructure challenges. I am proud to have helped pass the plan to replace the SR 99 Viaduct with a deep-bore tunnel and am working hard on a solution for SR 520 that optimizes transit use and protects the neighborhoods of our district. I have also been watching closely as Sound Transit begins construction of the light rail tunnel through the heart of our district and am working to make sure that that project connects with the SR 520 project. I believe that the state should give counties more and better tools to support buses and light rail. And, as a bike commuter for eighteen years, I have been working on bicycle safety issues as well.
