  • 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.
