My number one job is to keep our citizens safe from harm. At the state level that means ensuring that our first responders have what they need, that our students and teachers are safe in their schools and that families, especially women and children are protected in their homes. I have sponsored and supported a wide variety of legislation to achieve these goals from obtaining MARCs funding for our police officers, to providing school resource officers and technological safety improvements in school buildings to protecting women and children from domestic violence.
