As a business owner, volunteer and state legislator, I have been through tough economic times like those we face today.
My business faced the challenges of the Great Recession. With hard work and determination, my business not only survived, it grew.
As our local volunteer chamber administrator, I collaborated with other leaders to create a community network of businesses, churches and non-profits working together to build a better community. Now, as its president, I work with local government and businesses
to inform, innovate and find solutions to our current economic challenges.
As a state legislator and member of the Appropriations Committee, I helped get the Federal Stimulus Package to those who needed it most. I've helped balance our state budget while investing in our state's infrastructure, education and health care systems.
Now, I am asking you to elect me to the U.S. Senate, so I can put my grit and determination to work for you.
