Meet Derek

Derek understands the struggles middle-class families are going through because he’s lived through them. The son of two public school teachers, Derek was raised in Port Angeles during a time of high unemployment on the Olympic Peninsula. As the timber industry declined and local businesses closed, Derek watched as his friends’ parents lost their jobs and their ability to support their families.

The American people deserve a Congress that works better for them. I'm proud of the work we've accomplished, and I hope to do more to make our Congress work for the people.

My heart is with those impacted by last night's devastating act of violence in Colorado Springs. Every person has a right to exist and be who they are. We should all be committed to equality and equity for our LGBTQ+ community. #TransgenderDayofRemembrance
