Why I’m running

To advance the ideals and the will of the First District in the State Legislature

Colin is focused on addressing mental health and addiction issues

I have called Washington home since 1998 and during my senior year of high school at Marysville-Pilchuck I decided I wanted to run for office someday. I was determined then, as I am now, to do everything I can to improve our state and protect the rights of all Washingtonians. In my career as a public defender, I see firsthand the effects of our state’s broken mental health system. I am running for the State Legislature this year because I can no longer stand by and watch our government fail to adequately address this problem.
