Education

Educating our state's children is an issue that is dear to my heart. As a mother and now grandmother, I know the importance of a quality education system that is working for the students. 

Over the last 8 years in office, I have helped to write eight education budgets that have put needed funding into our children's classrooms, without a single year of proration. I also passed a bill grading school performance on an easy-to-understand A-F scale, so that parents can know how their children's schools compare.

In the upcoming term, I will continue to fight to ensure that the progress we have made in education is upheld.

Economic Development

A thriving economy is the cornerstone of a healthy community. That is why I so strongly believe in the importance of a good economic development strategy for Morgan County. 

I have passed important workforce development bills that are creating jobs and fighting unemployment.

As we move into the future, I will continue to look for opportunities for our local economy to be strengthened and thrive.
