It is an honor and privilege to serve the citizens of District 28, which includes portions of Hendricks and Boone counties. 

Although we have varying homesteads, we share many of the same goals: providing our children with an excellent education, strengthening our economy while still protecting our environment and keeping the size of our government and tax burden in check.

I value your thoughts, ideas and concerns on how I can help form public policy in our state. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of help to you in anyway.
