Statement: Thank you for your support over the years. I am energized and wish to represent our district by reclaiming the Senate position.

I am the mother of seven, grandmother of nineteen, a farmer and former Legislator from the 2nd District.  I know the value of hard work and getting the job done.

Education is the upmost priority and fully funding is a moral and legal responsibility.  I am a strong supporter of vocational education and skill centers.  We must budget wisely and put our children first.  I will be that tough voice our families and schools need and deserve for all  our children.  I am dedicated to public safety, improving roads, protecting our tax dollars and jobs and small businesses.  I will make sure government services are delivered effectively.

I have a proven record of getting the job done and always being there for you. My pledge to you is to be accessible, listen, work hard with honesty and integrity.  I am ready to work for you.  My warmest regards and I treasure your support and friendship.
