It has been a busy start to the new year, and I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and healthy 2017. It is hard to believe that at this time last year I was just starting in the legislature. As a physicist, I had a lot to learn about the world of politics, and this past year certainly has served as a crash course.
During the past 12 months, I have talked to residents of all 14 towns that make up my district, including parents, mayors, local business owners and police chiefs. Additionally, we have assisted numerous families navigate their way through the bureaucracy of state agencies with regards to medical bills, student debt, housing, and tax refunds. We have hosted mobile office hours throughout the district, a job fair for hundreds, a state agency resource fair, and hosted a food drive.
As a scientist, my goal is to grow the "innovation" economy in our state, creating high-quality and high-paying jobs for people of all backgrounds and education levels. As always, everything I do is based upon my guiding principle of making decisions based on evidence rather than ideology or political expedience.
As my second year begins, I encourage you to continue to contact me. We are available to assist you with any issues, and I look forward to hearing your opinions regarding proposed legislation or helping you navigate any problems with state and local agencies.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-454-3147. I look forward to serving you in the legislature this year.
