As a Democrat many people have asked, "How can someone in the minority party affect change?" For our democracy to work the minority party must have a voice and we have that voice in our committees. Someone has got to ask the tough questions when a bill is before us.
I enjoy being able to represent the views of so many good people in my district and throughout the state, views that otherwise might have gone unrepresented. Ultra conservatives who are out of touch with District 18 are trying to take back our district. I am a moderate voice for this district and will work hard to find common sense solutions.
