Welcome! The 2015 legislative session ends May 6, 2015, and we are down to the wire and almost across the finish line. SB-234 (FY2015-16 Long Bill) passed the legislature and the Governor signed the budget into law. SB-267 (School Finance Act) passed out of the Senate last week and will be dbeated in the House. There are many remaining bills that must be addressed so these next couple of weeks will be intense. I continue to work hard as your public servant, and my door is always open to meet in person, talk over the phone or communicate electronically. My monthly community conversations, town hall meetings and issue forums provide opportunities for informed civic engagement and community dialogue. I genuinely want to know what's on your mind and in your heart. On Saturday, 4/25, we had an excellent community forum on the "Future of Work." Our End of Session Town Hall Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, May 9, 10:30 AM - noon, Council Tree Library, FC. Please join us for a a post-session wrap-up, analysis and discussion about the 2015 legislative session. During the summer, I will continue my community conversations and walking neighborhoods to reconnect with folks. In the fall, we will resume our community issues forums; welcome your ideas.
