Jason was born and raised in Ellensburg and now lives on the west side of the mountains in Issaquah with his wife Michelle. His deep roots in Washington’s 8th Congressional District, which stretches from the factories and high-tech companies in King and Pierce Counties to the farming and ranching communities of Eastern Washington, give him a unique understanding of the diverse character of the 8th district.
I want to be your voice in Congress as we take on these challenges. We have been underrepresented in the 8th district for a long time. That’s why I entered this race; that’s why I kicked off our campaign with 30 town halls in 30 days. As your representative, I will listen to your concerns, be accessible when you have questions, and advocate for policies that are best for you in Congress. These are the issues I will be focused on: the issues of everyday people.
