As Southwest Washington's representative in Congress, I want to keep you up-to-date on my work to improve life in our region. For timely updates, please be sure to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Investing in Reliable and Safe Transportation
Whether it's getting to work, school, or doctor appointments, transit is a lifeline for folks in Longview and Kelso. It was great to visit RiverCities Transit, tour the newly expanded Transit Center, and take a look at the new biodiesel buses that are replacing the oldest in their fleet.
I'm proud to have secured the funding for the much-needed expansion and bus upgrades so folks here continue to have reliable and safe transportation options.
Fighting for Small Businesses
I’m honored to be named a "Guardian of Small Business" by the nation's leading small business advocacy group. Please know I will continue fighting in Congress for our Main Street job creators, and to provide them the necessary resources to keep their doors open and their employees paid throughout this public health crisis.
