Our Agenda

Our agenda is simple: I want to put my constituents at the forefront of every decision I make. After all, constituents are the ones electing politicians into office. It's their job to be a public servant and support you in any way they can. I wholeheartedly believe that the plans I’ve laid forth will improve the way we live our everyday lives. Not only will they stimulate the economy, but, more importantly, they will help those within our community.
