2019 Legislative Agenda, Letter to Editor

Posted on February 1, 2019 by Greg MacKinnon


To the Editor,

There are many issues we can improve upon as a community and a state. My common sense policy proposals this session aim to create a safer environment for children and families, strengthen the economy by enriching the workforce, and improve the overall quality of life in our communities.

Some of my proposals include:

  • Providing greater protection to area schools, ensuring our students have a safe place to learn
  • Addressing the public health dangers posed by vaping and its associated marketing tactics targeted at our children
  • Requiring the state to pass the budget on time, or legislators and members of the executive branch will not receive paychecks
  • Promoting the use of volunteer and volunteer organizations
  • Increasing options for victims of sexual assault and promoting workplace prevention training
