35th DISTRICT - POSITION 2 - R

Fighting for a Better Washington

AllynDock.jpeg

Our great state is in crisis mode from decades of failed leadership and harmful policies. Washington has the lowest amount of police in the nation and the highest crime rates in decades, some of the highest taxes and cost of living, drug and homelessness crises, an education system that is failing our kids in the basics, the 4th most unaffordable housing in the nation, and some of the most unaffordable and unavailable childcare in the country.

With your help I fought back and won on critical issues that matter most to the people of Washington State.

We restored reasonable police pursuits, banned state income taxes, and enacted a Parents Bill of Rights for education, and restored penalties for possession of hard drugs.

We stopped the state from placing sexually violent predators from McNeil Island into your neighborhoods, and stopped a proposal for an international airport which would’ve levelled thousands of homes and harmed the environment.

In my first term, I passed multiple measures to protect our most vulnerable children and people with disabilities.

I won record investments into our rural district that will drive economic development, build infrastructure, create more childcare, improve schools, build affordable housing, help create jobs, protect domestic violence survivors, and lift up our entire community.

You know as well as I do that there is still much more to be done. I charged into Olympia with a fire in my belly and I fought for everything I promised you I would fight for and more – and I'm not done yet. It is my mission to hear you, stand up for you, fight for our values, and amplify your voice in Olympia.

 

It is my life’s honor and privilege to be your Representative.

As a father of four, Travis knows what it is like to work through the challenges of getting kids through school, he knows what it's like to spend a fortune at the grocery store and the gas pump, and he knows what it’s like to worry about our kids' future in these hard times.
