Strengthening our Public Schools
- Excerpt:"No matter where you live, a quality education is the key to a better tomorrow. Our tax dollars should be spent wisely; although all areas were cut in this tough budget year, I voted to prevent such drastic cuts to public education."
- Excerpt:"As an attorney for the last 16 years and now as a legislator, I consider criminal justice one of the most important issues we face as a community. In the short time I have been in the General Assembly, I have worked to keep our communities safe, while making our criminal justice system responsive, equitable, and effective. "
- Excerpt:"As your State House Representative, I will continue to work to enhance our long-term economic prospects. In order to do this, we must continue to strengthen our public schools, community colleges, and universities."
- Excerpt:"Because I live here in the district, work in the district, go to church here in the district, and am active in this district, I am dedicated to our community and to being an effective voice in the General Assembly on behalf of all residents of District 39. To that end, I have worked with the local town elected officials and managers on their requests for local legislation during my first term."
