Diverse views at the table working together on common issues to find solutions create unity.
The framework and foundation of our great State lie within each Community. Our State's diverse cultures reflect a richness that we all can appreciate. Respect for elders, support for community arts, respect for beliefs, and honoring legacies reflect how we can celebrate our differences.
Listen to needs and assess skills. Provide access to resources that strengthen areas of need.
Experiencing HomelessnessI will work with organizations, businesses, and others passionate about ending our homeless crisis. There are different categories of homelessness: chronic, episodic, and temporary. We need approaches that appropriately address each type of experience.
Cost of LivingLet's strategize with all stakeholders about mitigating the cost of living. Taxes are high because we heavily rely on one of the nation's most regressive state tax codes. Without an income or corporate tax, sales and fuel taxes pay for public expenses and levy a heavier burden on lower-income residents. Housing costs, transportation, health care, and food relative to salaries decrease affordable living in Washington State. Each minimum wage increase becomes absorbed by the cost of living for single workers and two working people in a home. Undoubtedly, the cost of living is a primary contributor to people experiencing homelessness.
Mental and Physical HealthOur State needs to address every aspect of the pursuit of happiness. Integrating mental health into primary healthcare should be our ultimate goal. Not only is there a lack of access to necessary medication and treatments for residents who need mental health services, but also resources for the average everyday person who just needs to vent. We must explore ways to help people become more active and productive in society. Too many Washingtonians endure a fractured healthcare experience like my son suffered as a child due to barriers that prevent access to needed surgeries. Our veterans serve our country but do not receive the treatment they deserve for their sacrifice. I will address medical insurance needs and explore issues not covered by healthcare insurance entities.
