Ethics: Legislators work for and are accountable to the voters, not the other way around, and the legislature has not been responsive to the public's desire for real ethics reform. I have heard some argue that "you cannot legislate ethics". I disagree with this statement. As a legislator I will pursue further ethics related legislation to implement a stricter ethical standard. Harsher penalties for ethical breeches would deter legislators and lobbyists from taking chances where ethics and morals are concerned. I do not believe there are "gray areas" when it comes to ethics and morals and I commit to you now that I will never violate the public's trust. As a legislator my only role is to represent YOU and your interests.
