Legislation and Activities I am working on currently:

  2. Legislation to further secure your children's school records.

  3. Transparency about responsibilities of your local water districts and the responsibilities of the homeowner.

  4. Gathering support for a "Job Fair" to expose and highlight "High Skilled Trades" for the growing manufacturing business coming to our area. This is an exciting venture coming to the Maverick Center in the fall.
