Greetings! I am pleased to announce my committee assignments for the upcoming Legislative Session!
Education, Co-Vice Chair for Higher Education Committee, and Ways and Means- Education Committee.
Given my background in education, I am interested in bringing my perspective to these committees. We have long seen our education going downhill, with academics being put on the backburner. I hope to change that…
I had hoped to be on the Natural Resources Committee, but being a freshman, it’s the hot committee to be on, so I didn’t make the cut. It won’t be far from my mind, and I plan to have my staff an eye on it. I will also be closely following Business and Labor, as these tend to play hand in hand with the agricultural community.
Overall, my attitude is one that I will do my absolute best in whatever committee I am in. I am here to represent the desires and needs of my constituents, as well as bring my values to the table.
If you’re curious about what the next few weeks look like as session starts- incoming freshman have training on the 5th-6th. The entire House and Senate swear in on the 9th with the Governor’s address that day as well. Then all of us attend training the 10th, 11th, and 12th. We head home for the 4-day weekend and then hit the ground running with committees that next Tuesday. Please be looking for updates on my state website as well as Facebook and here.
I am honored to be your Representative and would welcome you to reach out to me with any questions. I would ask that as you think of it- pray for me, pray for the Representatives and Senators making decisions that will be affecting you. Pray for our state and our country. The elections may not have gone as we had hoped, but we won’t give up. We will keep on keeping on. Hope is ever on the horizon.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May His face shine on you and give you peace as we enter into this New Year.
Many blessings from my home to yours.
