Q1: Do you favor establishing a family and medical leave insurance program for Washington, funded through payroll premiums (estimated to total $3.00 per week for a typical worker)?
I can attest firsthand to the importance of having paid family leave. I absolutely support the creation of a paid family medical leave program and should the data support that the total cost would be $3.00 per week per worker, I would support such legislation – the caveat is that I would want to examine what is deemed a “typical” worker as I know how significant $3.00 can be to a working family.
Q2: Will you prioritize passing family and medical leave insurance in 2017?
Finding family based solutions to the issues of the people of Washington is one of my foundation issues of my campaign. This is a priority issue for me and I will work hard with all my colleagues to bring it to fruition.
Q3: Optional additional statement:
My story is not unique to many people in the State of Washington. It is unique to most if not all of the current members of the State Legislature.  As a childhood beneficiary of the social safety net, I am committed to ensuring that future generations have the same, if not better, options that helped me achieve success as a student, young adult, and now as a working mother
