Public Safety

Public Safety is the one area where government has a clear responsibility to the people. From drunk driving and illegal drugs to illegal immigration and refugee resettlement, your Legislature must be ever-vigilant to protect you from criminal activities and exposure to third world diseases. My record is pretty clear in these areas and the legislation I carried into law continues to save lives today.
