a Word of Welcome

Serving as State Senator for the 31st district is an honor for me. I’ve had the opportunity to be involved with important issues that affect our state in a very real way. I’ve played a role in strengthening our economy, which has in turn helped us improve the delivery of basic goods and services for the citizens of our great state. But the most rewarding part of my service has been meeting and working with so many great individuals in the district and across Kansas.

In challenging and changing times, it is important for us to remain focused on the positive - on the things we do well. As your public servant, I work for you. We are working our way through a difficult budgeting time period; however, it is also an opportunity to make Kansas better and stronger. We must keep working together and I hope you’ll join me in doing just that: working for Kansas!
