It's official! In the good company of my husband Briley, my parents, and my colleagues and their families, I was sworn in as the State Senator for District 42.

The first week of session and the budget review week is behind us. It got off to a fast start. But, I was able to find 5 minutes to sit in my desk on the Senate floor after adjournment and think about how thankful I am that you trusted me to be your voice in that chamber.
