Good Government

 

I believe our government functions best when it is open, transparent, and accountable to the people. As your State Senator, I am committed to these principles in whatever work our government is undertaking—from setting high standards for the responsiveness of my own office staff to constituents to pushing for clear disclosure and evaluation on corporate tax incentives and grants; from maintaining strong campaign finance laws to making our annual state budget more transparent and understandable to the average citizen.
