2013 Special Session

Floor Speech During the
2013 Session


I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. We celebrate with decorative lights the darkest and shortest days of the year partly because we know that brighter days are coming. I am looking forward to the 2014 Session of your Legislature as a time to move us apace toward them. Please join me and Senator Beyer for one of our Listening Sessions in January. We need your ideas, comments, support and criticism to help make our State brighter and more prosperous, a place where every adult can find a good paying job, where all, from the youngest child to those who need retraining for the jobs available now, can get the education they need and we, as a society, need for them to have.

Have a great holiday. See you at our Listening Sessions in January,
