Strengthening Our Community Through Communication
I will continue to fight for clean energy jobs and promote an affordable green economy. I was instrumental in passing landmark legislation that will create more off-shore wind and hydro power. Our future is in energy storage and I will fight to create an environment where green technology will thrive.
I will continue to fight for increased education funding, special education circuit breaker and charter school reimbursement. I will also continue to fight for our public safety officers, transportation and road projects.
Drug and Alcohol addiction has historically caused pain for families and negatively impacted our economy. This is a social ill we should not turn a blind eye towards. I will continue to fight to ensure our community has the needed funds to provide treatment to tackle this ongoing crisis.
We have made positive strides towards helping those who deal with mental health issues. I will continue to fight to make sure mental health has parity with physical health.
I am proud to have supported a balanced state budget that also increased our stabilization account to $2 billion. A strong economy is built with sound fiscal management and I will continue to make this a priority. Click on State House for FY2019 Budget Process.
