Dear Friends and Neighbors:

Thank you for allowing me to serve as your state representative The experience has been extremely fulfilling. These are challenging times. With less revenues, we must find ways to preserve our way of life with less funding. As a senior member of the Appropriations Committee, I understand the budget and how to make the most of shrinking revenues, protecting Cheyenne and our Great state. Please let me continue working for you and our community.
