We deserve legislators who make government work for all of us, who roll up their sleeves and get things done. America is built on the wisdom of collaboration, negotiation and compromise. The hard work of governance yields positive outcomes when these tools of democracy are put into action.
We must ensure that our children are afforded the highest quality of education. Without a strong public school option for our youth, our communities suffer consequences beyond the classroom.
We all deserve to live in a safe and healthy society. It is important that all people – regardless of income, age or ability – have clear and comprehensive access to vital healthcare options and services.
We must protect and preserve our precious farmland. We have our hands on some of the most fertile farmland in the country. The productivity of this land must be safeguarded in order to guarantee that future generations will remain stewards of this irreplaceable asset.
I am committed to the safety and structural integrity of our rural roads, bridges and highways.
