In 2017, the Republicans in Olympia shifted the tax burden to local families by raising our property taxes, hurting seniors and working people. Claire knows local voters support school bonds and levies, but a gigantic statewide property tax was the wrong path forward. Claire will push to close tax loopholes for big corporations and wealthy special interests so that we can lower property taxes for middle class families and provide genuine relief.


South King County has waited long enough for the transportation projects we have been funding and deserve. Claire will make sure our transportation dollars are invested in local congestion relief and streamline the delivery of road improvements, light rail projects, and other transit needs, making sure they are done on time and on budget. Claire knows we need these projects to stimulate jobs and help our state grow, and won’t allow these improvements to come at the expense of duping the taxpayers who pay for them.
