My goal, as your Senator, is to bring my problem solving and listening skills to the discussion. I’ll use these skills to work with the legislature to enact laws that improve the lives of all Arkansans. I’ll work for the people instead of party or special interest groups. This cannot be done by one person. This can only be done if we work together and listen to the people who vote.
My top issues are:
All of these issues are connected. Education is tied to economy. Economy is tied to equality. Equality is tied to healthcare. And campaign finance is money spent on intangibles instead of the people of Arkansas.
One thing I notice as I write this is that these issues have been around awhile. The people in office have had a lot of time to “figure it out” and while there has been progress, we have a long way to go. I will listen. I will speak up. I will not be influenced by the special interest groups or PACs or Lobbyists. The job of elected officials is to be the voice of the people who voted.
