Senior Citizens

  • Excerpt:"As State Representative, I’ll work to repeal the pension tax and ensure that their service and dedication to this state is rewarded, not punished."

Jobs & Economy

  • Excerpt:"As State Representative, I’ll fight to bring an immediate end to the corporate cronyism that drastically undercuts the potential for serious job creation."

Public Safety
