I hope that you and your family are holding up okay under these difficult circumstances.
Never before have we faced so many challenges at once, with a raging pandemic threatening our health and our lives, a sharp economic downturn bringing severe hardship to so many, and a national uprising over race and policing forcing us to reckon with our history of injustice.
Summer’s glorious weather is upon us but there are no Little League games, concerts, parades or fireworks, and crowded stadiums, restaurants, salons, gyms and retail shops are a distant hope.
Phrases such as “social distancing” and “contact tracing” and “PPE” have entered our lexicon as we struggle to keep our kids engaged in remote learning and to sustain our small businesses. I hope we will emerge stronger from the COVID pandemic, but we still have a long way to go in these stressful and uncertain times.
Bringing Justice Back to The Justice System
No Baby Kissing This Year
It’s now campaign season, and even during these unprecedented times our elections are proceeding uninterrupted and without delay. The pandemic has made this campaign different from all the rest, as I am not able to visit the voters at their doors.
Still, I need to hear from you. Listening to you is a critical part of my job. You keep me updated on what’s going on in our area, and by gathering your input I can become more effective for you at the State Capitol. I want to make sure I’m in tune with your values and your priorities so I can represent you well. One way or another, even if I’m not able to visit you personally at your door, I will be reaching out to get your input and inform my work in representing you. Please sign up at the top of this page to get on our mailing list. We will be in touch!
