My Top 3 Priorities

  • To end the budget impasse, and to make sure it never happens again. There are areas of state government that can be reduced or combined if they have a similar purpose.
  • To make sure our educational funds are distributed fairly, and based on needs. To make sure our educators are compensated like the professionals that they are.
  • To look at innovative ways to spur economic growth such as "Enterprise Zones," to create,and retain jobs for my consitiuents.
