I’m honored to have been selected as a “2020 Legislative Hero” by the Washington Hospitality Association, which “supports and advocates for restaurateurs, hoteliers and related hospitality industry professionals” throughout the state. The Washington Hospitality Association “is the state’s leading hospitality trade group, representing more than 6,000 members of the hotel, restaurant and hospitality industry”
According to the Hospitality Association, the 2020 Legislative Heroes “championed important issues and assisted on bills that ultimately will improve the way hospitality can support its employees and local communities.”
Here’s what the Hospitality Association said about my own efforts during the session:
Rep. Drew Stokesbary, R-Auburn: Stokesbary showed continued support and dedication through the high-stakes discussions of the consumer data privacy legislation. He played an important role as the ranking minority member on the House Appropriations Committee and is always working hard to stop new taxes from impacting the business community.
