Thank you so much for your continued support and allowing me to serve as your voice on these very pressing issues. Read More »

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.

Thank you.

I'm ready to work. There's a litany of issues in front of the Senate and the district this year — all of which are as pressing as the other. But with your support, I feel confident that I'll be able to inject well-needed prudence into each one.

Below is run-down of just some of the issues my office is working on or monitoring this session. I'd love your input on these or other pressing issues as we move forward.
