Personal Priorities

Serve with integrity

Integrity is a very important attribute to me. I will always strive to be true to my word. I will do my utmost to be true to my word. My word is my bond.

Communicate Honestly

I promise to be as honest as I possibly can. I will be up-front with you, my constituents. While we will not always agree, I will do my best to communicate with you my position. It is very important for you to know where I stand on the issues. I will continue to publish a monthly newsletter during the interim and weekly during the session.

Work Hard

Being a legislator is hard work and I'm willing to do it. While my family will always take top priority, the remainder of my time will be appropriately allocated to serving you and serving my employer. It is in my nature to work hard and I will continue to do so for you.
