I am excited to officially file for re-election to the State Senate today.
It has been an absolute honor and a privilege serving the residents of Senate District 9 these last two years. It has been an amazing opportunity to meet so many people across the district and learn about their families, their businesses, their struggles, and their hopes for the future of our state.
My priorities in the Senate have come from those conversations and those meetings. We provided over $400 million in local property tax relief this session, and I am proud to have sponsored legislation that increased the rate of Rooms and Meals tax revenue that gets sent back to local towns. This was important to me because it provides local property tax relief, which is sorely needed, and also because the state had been breaking its promise regarding the sharing of Rooms and Meals tax revenue for too long, and I believe government should keep its promises to the citizens it serves.
And as a member of the Senate Education Committee, and under the leadership of Chairwoman Ruth Ward, we made incredibly strides in providing more school choice to parents and more opportunities for students to get the education that they deserve, and the educational environment that works best for them.
When I first ran for Senate, I spoke about keeping promises, I think I kept the promises I made on the campaign trail, and this year I plan on campaigning just as I have done in the past; door to door, person to person, and talking about my record, and focused on the needs and concerns of my constituents.
