Thanks for visiting my Web site. It’s a great honor to serve the people of the beautiful 16th District. I have joined the state Senate this year after six terms in the state House. I spend a lot of time listening to constituents about the needs of our communities. This important feedback helps me refine my priorities as your state senator, including:
- Creating and preserving jobs;
- Working to help empower parents to be their kids’ first teachers and making sure all kids are prepared and excited about entering kindergarten;
- Addressing agricultural needs and concerns;
- Making health care more affordable and accessible;
- Preparing students for our diverse economy; and
- Responsible state budgeting that cares for our senior citizens and the most vulnerable.
