Letter from Representative Luis Moscoso

My name is Luis Moscoso and I have had the honor to represent you as your State Representative here in the First Legislative District. I am asking that you please support me once again with your vote so that I can keep up the work I have started on your behalf.  I am proud that my very first legislation passed in to law was a bill (HB 1520) transferring a 2.51 mile section of SR 527 to the City of Bothell, from SR 522 to I-405.

We are a resilient community here in Bothell and one built on the backbone of small businesses. That is why I have committed myself to working on both sides of the aisle and helped pass the Washington State Jobs Act. This legislation not only eliminated many outdated regulations, helping to lessen the burden on our job creators, but promotes small business development; creating jobs right here in Bothell!
