Welcome to my website! And thank you for your interest in the legislative process.

It is an honor and privilege to serve the people and communities of the 26th District. Together, we have accomplish a lot in the Legislature. However, we know more work remains to be done in the areas of affordability, public safety, education and state government accountability. I remain focused on these issues and others.

As a state representative, my views are shaped by life experiences and the sentiments of my constituents. In every vote I take, I put people before politics. No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, your opinions and concerns are important to me – and I encourage you to share them.

Please feel free to call, email or send me a letter anytime. I look forward to hearing from you.

My Priorities

Providing tax relief and making life more affordable

I supported a 2022 supplemental operating budget framework that would have used the state’s $15 billion budget surplus to reduce the state sales tax rate, lower the B&O tax for manufacturing and trucking by 40% and expand an existing tax preference for food processors, extend one-time assistance to 133 less affluent schools districts, hire more police officers, and invest in our state transportation system.

Ensuring our communities are safe

I supported a comprehensive package of bills that would have prioritized public safety, supported law enforcement and prevented crime. Some of these measures sought to fix the serious problems created by policing bills that passed in the 2021 legislative session. We must ensure that our communities are safe and criminals are held accountable.

Restoring balance and trust to state government

For the last two years, Republicans in the Legislature have pushed for common-sense, emergency powers reforms to restore balance and trust in state government. We want to give our constituents a stronger voice in the decisions that greatly impact their lives. Despite bipartisan support of these bills, Democratic leadership prevented any legislation from moving forward.

Offering real solutions for the problems facing our state

While Republicans must fight back against harmful legislation, we cannot simply be the minority party of “no.” It is our responsibility to put alternative solutions on the table to offer contrast and policy choices. And that’s exactly what House Republicans have done the last two years.
