Friends and Neighbors,
Welcome to my Legislative Website. Here, you can find more about me, my work, and how to contact me. I hope you find it useful, and I encourage you to get in touch if I can be of service.
I’m honored to represent Springfield, District 12, in the 78th Oregon Legislative Session. The 2015 session is my second as your elected representative. I have a long history of living and serving in my district and look forward to continuing to work on behalf of my constituents here in Salem.
As our economy continues to slowly improve, we have much work to do to make the incremental changes we can with the resources we have. To encourage and support the increased jobs needed in our State and particularly in Springfield, we need to make sure that we have the infrastructure it takes to start new businesses. That means efficient transportation systems, reliable and reasonably priced utilities, a strong education system, affordable and accessible health care, safe neighborhoods, and sustainable local government services. I will be working on the Transportation & Economic Development and Health Care committees—all areas that impact us all and need a serious, common-sense approach. I will also be Chair of the Veteran's and Emergency Preparedness committee. If you click the link above to sign up for my E-Newsletter, I’ll be sure to stay in touch with you about how the legislature is moving on these and other important issues facing Oregonians.
Thank you again for your faith in my public service. I hope that by working together we can make Springfield and Oregon an even better place to live, work, and raise our families.
