Public policy can have a profound effect on our lives. And government can be a great force to make those lives better.
But the only way that happens, the only way democracy works, is if those in policy making positions work collaboratively for the common good. All too often pragmatic solutions are less prominent in the Legislature or the Congress that political or partisan posturing. I do not think that is what the founders intended.
I intend to continue to work for my constituents. With anyone. In a flexible and solution oriented manner for the common good.
