As Southwest Washington's representative in Congress, I want to keep you up-to-date on my work to improve life in our region. In the newsletter below, you will find my most recent update. If you have any questions or comments for me, please send me a direct message here.
Finding solutions to combat addiction and improve mental health
Every one of us has seen how addiction is touching every corner of Southwest Washington. That's why I've helped cofound the Bipartisan Addiction and Mental Health Task Force in Congress, which recently held its first session to shine the light on how COVID has exacerbated substance use and mental health issues across America.
Our goal is to listen and learn, and then use that data to shape policies to help folks break addiction and obtain treatment to improve mental health.

Recognizing our Southwest Washington teachers
This past week was Teacher Appreciation Week, and I want to take a moment to recognize our Southwest Washington teachers. Being a teacher is not an easy job -- and the past year has made that all the more evident -- which is why we appreciate your continued hard work to educate and enrich the lives of our children.
To our Southwest Washington teachers: thank you!
I'm continuing to add information on small business resources, COVID vaccine and testing locations, local health departments, unemployment benefits, and more on my COVID dedicated webpage: JHB.house.gov/coronavirus.
It's an honor to serve you in Congress. If you have a comment, question, or an idea for me, please send me a direct message here. As always, please let me know how I can assist you.
