Thank you for your support during this past year. A lot was accomplished, and a lot remains to be completed. As we move forward into 2016, we all have an opportunity to contribute in making our district and state a better place to work and live. I ask you to help me by keeping me informed in those areas I may not have complete information. Working together we can accomplish great things.
The upcoming legislative session will most likely have a few areas of contention. We are faced with making adjustments to the Supreme Court mandate regarding education funding. There are pros and cons coming from both sides of the aisle on this contentious issue. We all want quality education for our children, and fair compensation for all who work with them on a daily basis. The challenge before us is how to make these implementations in a common sense manner that will not place an undue burden on our citizens in the process. Your input is welcomed, and I encourage you to study not only this issue, but all those that will be brought before the legislature this year.
I wish each of you a very Happy & Prosperous New Year.
