Delivering for our communities is my top priority as your state senator. Every legislative session – in partnership with constituents, community groups, and town/city governments – I work to direct funding into our communities to support vital projects and infrastructural upgrades. I could not do this work without meaningful dialogue within the communities I represent. 

In the 2021 to 2022 legislative session alone, I secured $25,089,000 for our district to fund a variety of initiatives within our communities. Whether its resources to combat food insecurity, improvements to our road and water infrastructure, investment in our green spaces, or new facilities for essential community organizations, I am committed to putting dollars where our cities and towns say they need it most.
