Helping out those who helped build our great community has always been a priority and I have fought to provide options for our seniors to stay in their homes and enjoy their retirement years. I have worked to provide property tax relief and long-term care options that help to keep all of our health care costs low.

As the chair of the Long Term care task force I worked with the Senior Citizens Lobby, AARP Washington, the State Council on Aging and Eldercare Alliance to implement much needed reforms to prevent disease and harmful injuries that lead to hospitalizations and subsequent nursing home admissions. I also worked to end the Nursing Home Bed Tax, which adds up to over $1,900 a year per bed and hurts many private-paying nursing home residents.
