As a veteran and former police detective, I am committed to keeping our citizens safe, ensuring our local police and fire services are adequately funded and making sure our military men and women have the same support when they return home that they do when they’re abroad.

I am proud to serve as the lead Democrat on the Senate Appropriations Committee, and will work hard to make sure our state departments receive the funding they need to provide the services you depend on.
