I do favor establishing a family and medical leave insurance program in Washington State.
Q2: Will you prioritize passing family and medical leave insurance in 2017?
I will prioritize family and medical leave insurance in 2017.
Q3: Optional additional statement:
The difficult and false choices that workers are presented don’t allow many to feel that they can have an adequate balance between family and career. Often women in particular, are forced to choose parenthood or caring for aging parents in exchange for a successful career-these choices effect women their entire lives into their own retirement. Policies such as family and medical leave insurance are a positive step toward balance and eliminating penalties against women wishing to have a successful career and family.

Q3: Optional additional statement:
A few terms ago, I decided that, since I’ve got a voting record, it made more sense to ask all groups that offer questionnaires to evaluate me by my voting record and public actions rather than by answers to questions that are often hypothetical and cannot be verified until after the election.  This seems to be a more reliable method of looking at candidates, to me, and much less open to answers that might be simple pandering.  I hope your members will understand that I am trying to do this respectfully rather than dismissively.
