As the holiday season quickly approaches, I enter this chapter of my life with humility and gratitude in my heart.
I cannot thank the people of West Central Indiana enough for allowing me to serve you and be your voice in the General Assembly during the 2013 legislative session.
It is truly an honor to participate in the decision making process that will lead to the betterment of our great state.
As a freshmen lawmaker, I am ready to serve the public by listening and learning from every experience and by leading with integrity.
Indiana is facing many critical issues, and I consider this session an opportunity to address many of those concerns by enacting legislation that will improve the livelihood of all Hoosiers.
I believe that through effective communication and sound reasoning, we can overcome any obstacle.
As we look to craft a balanced budget this year, Indiana is in an excellent position with a healthy reserve and a solid economic foundation.
Indiana has led the nation's recovery efforts since the recession with the private sector growing faster here than almost every other state, but there is still more work to do.
Supporting policies that will spur economic development and job creation is my top priority.
By working together, we can continue to build on our state's momentum and restore American prosperity in the Midwest.
Thank you again for allowing me to serve as your voice in the 118th General Assembly.
