Opening Day of the 2021 Legislative Session

Posted on January 8, 2021


Yesterday, after being honored to take the oath of office to protect the Constitution of our state and country, I voted against the rules allowing the legislature to make laws by remote control without any personal interaction with the voters.

Posted on December 22, 2020


I support Leader-Elect Candelora’s call to delay the scheduled pay raises and the 0.5% payroll tax targeting members of the private sector.

We are in a time when people are losing their jobs and some businesses are closing their doors. It is wrong that some are getting pay raises, while being exempt from this latest tax and others are left to shoulder the financial burden.

With so many struggling, it is hard to fathom why select people should see more money coming out of their paychecks.

Friends and Neighbors,

Back in October, I posted on Facebook regarding the effects that COVID-19 is having on those who suffer from depression and other mental health disorders.

Today, the Lieutenant Governor noted that since March, domestic violence calls are up more than 70%, and shelters are at 151%, which
