Each year about this time before session starts, one of the most important things I do is to formally reach out to my fellow Arizonans to find out what is important to them and what they want to see legislatively in the upcoming year.
The start of the 2014 session begins this month, so if there are any areas (state-wide or local) no matter how big or small, that you deem need improvement, change, etc., please let me know as I may be able to introduce legislation to try to address it. You can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
I cannot tell you how many great ideas I have received in the past (both when I served in the Senate and House) and many of those ideas were ultimately debated as bills in the legislature and even signed by the Governor, so please know how valuable your input is.
Remember, I work for you, my constituents and the people of Arizona, so hearing what matters to you certainly matters to me.
Additionally, if you would like to visit the Capitol and/or spend a few hours shadowing me to experience what a typical day is like in the legislature, simply let me know and it would my honor to arrange it (we do this for individuals or groups including schools).
I am both thrilled and humbled to have the opportunity to continue to serve Legislative District 11 and will continue to do all I can in helping make Arizona the greatest state in the country. Now more than ever, the support, input, and involvement from ‘We the People’ is essential in order to ensure the proper role, responsibilities, and function of our government.
