What's Happening


April 6, 2018

The last 86 days have flown by and it’s hard to believe it’s already spring! Despite the fact that it still feels like winter, we only have 4 days until the end of session. By next Friday, my End of Session letter will be mailed to every constituent who contacted me this session (more than 1,100 so far) highlighting the outcome of important legislation. Since there are so many bills, we’re not able to update you on all of them.

Fight for $15

January 16, 2018

Last night, surrounded by business leaders, union workers, faith groups and fellow colleagues, Senator Rich Madaleno and I kicked off the Fight for $15 Campaign, a measure that would raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 by 2023.

As 2017 Comes to a Close

December 19, 2017
2017 has been quite a year! There have been highs and lows - moments of utter disbelief and unexpected joy. As an optimist, I’ll shine a little light on the highs that bookend the year for me: the Women’s March and the election of Doug Jones to the U.S. Senate in Alabama. The sense of community and purpose so many of us felt from participating in the Women’s March back in January persists even today. And while the election of Doug Jones was close, it demonstrated the importance of organizing and of showing up.

The Waning Days of November

November 29, 2017
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year, celebrating with family and friends. It is one of my favorite times of year, a special time to slow down (after the turkey!), take stock and to be grateful for those around us. But every day of the year, I’m grateful to live in a diverse and vibrant community, one in which I am able to serve the residents of District 11 in the General Assembly. Every day, I get to connect with constituents, many of whom I’ve known for years and some I’ve met more recently.

Two Days in a Row!

September 19, 2017


As I enter the final year of my first term in the House of Delegates, I’ve given a great deal of thought about how best to continue representing the needs of the people of the 11th district, fighting for the issues most important to them and to me.  I really appreciate and have been humbled by the encouragement and support of so many individuals and organizations, and I have carefully considered all of their suggestions about how I can be most effective.
