STATEMENT:

I believe elected officials should be held to the highest standard.

You deserve to represented in Juneau by hard-working public servants who bring common sense, leadership and integrity to the legislative process. They must share your values, respect your opinions, and listen to your concerns.

My commitments to you are straightforward:

As your Senator, I will be accessible and responsive, and work constructively with other legislators to solve Alaska's problems...and address your needs.

During my tenure in the legislature, I have worked hard to author good legislation, stop bad legislation, and be an outspoken advocate for our district. I am proud of my record and believe that I have the public and private experience to provide strong leadership for our district.

Together, Alaskans face a challenging future. I will continue to represent the values that are important to you and work to make Alaska the best it can be.

It is an honor to represent the people of West Anchorage and I thank you for your past support. I would again appreciate your vote, and look forward to working with you in the years ahead.
