A lot has happened in the last few weeks and there's a lot coming up!
August was a busy month! Let's catch up on some of the most important things that happened at the legislature.
During the 6th Special Legislative Session, Coronavirus aid and relief was on the docket once again. Most notably, we allocated remaining federal funds our state received back in March. HB 6002 extended benefits for impacted businesses and workers and provided money for schools to purchase supplies and PPE for our teachers.
Additionally, some colleagues and I tried to prevent $53 million from being used to bail out a bankrupt coal-export terminal in Oakland, California. Unfortunately, we were not successful. I believe the money should be redirected to efforts that will help rural communities - like teacher training, school nurses, health needs or job training programs.
When I ran for office, I promised to fight for you and your family. Now, more than ever, we need good leadership. Thank you to all of you who make this possible--I couldn't do it without you.
As always, please reach out if you have any questions or concerns. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 801-999-8047.
With the election just 9 weeks away, it's more important than ever that we are listening to our community.
That's why we are canvassing our community every week! Find a time that works for you--we would love to see you there
Note: Weeknights change to 5:00 PM starting September 8
Back to School
Last week marked the first day of 7th, 9th, and 11th for our crew. How did they grow up so fast?!?
Thanks to all the teachers, bus drivers, counselors, custodians, food prep, nurses, and all the other essential workers who make it possible for our kids to learn and thrive. We appreciate all you do for our community.

I had a great time talking with families in our community this weekend. My favorite part about running for office is spending time with amazing members of our HD 32 community!
