Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Thank you for visiting my website. I am at the Capitol for the 2015 legislative session, which has been under way since Jan. 12 and is scheduled to conclude April 26.

I invite you to browse this site for posts and information on a variety of issues, and as always, I hope you will contact me if there is anything I can do for you.

If you reside in the 16th Legislative District and don’t already receive my Eastsider’s Report e-newsletter, I invite you to sign up by emailing me at asking to join. It’s a great way to stay updated on issues during legislative sessions and throughout the year.

Please let me know if you have questions or feedback about the issues facing our state, or if I can help you in any way. Thank you for the honor of serving as your state senator.
