Listen to what volunteer firefighter Andrew Engell says about wildfires. We have bureaucrats in Washington, DC making decisions that do not work for Eastern Washington. I’m leading on this issue with proposed legislation that revamps the way our national forests are managed — for more jobs, and fewer fires.
Thank you! I'm humbled by the trust and confidence of so many from across Eastern Washington. People are anxious and frustrated with an unaccountable federal government with top-down decision making, and I hear that. Now, it’s up to us - we the people - to take that energy and move beyond our frustration to enact real, smart solutions that make a difference.
Had a wonderful lunch today with a great group of constituents in Davenport, WA. The concerns I heard are many that I share - endless federal regulations hurting small businesses, a disconnect with the federal government, veterans not receiving the care they earned, and loss of the peoples' voice in the decision making process.
