Kaatz has stated, "I would like to revive a sense of mutual problem solving, always with the prospect of learning from one another. There are too many good ideas lost because of blatant and needless partisanship. My professional life always involved listening to all ideas and arriving at conclusions for difficult problems using the best ones. That is an approach I will bring with me to the legislature."
