Remembering Those Who Served
"I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country." -- Nathan Hale

Let us never forget that Memorial Day is a day for reflection and remembrance of the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in serving our nation. Please take some time this Memorial Day to remember all of America's fallen soldiers who paid the price that we can never fully repay.

Legislative Newsletter

As the summer months are almost upon us, it is an ideal time to take a look back at what we have accomplished and continue looking ahead to further define what our legislative priorities should be during the next session. Therefore, I put together a newsletter to review our achievements from the 2015-16 session and I included a survey to gain a better understanding of what your priorities are for the 2017-18 legislative session.

Keep an eye out for the newsletter, as it should hit mailboxes next week, and click the red button below to take the survey!
