    When I signed up to run for office just a short time ago, I had a strong desire to do all that I could to improve the quality of life in Green, Larue and Marion counties. After my first year as your State Representative, it is clear that our area has made great strides.

  • Don’t be a critic, be an advocate

    “They made the decision to mix these kids.”
    I cringed when I read that statement on The Lebanon Enterprise’s Facebook page last week.

  • Parents, step up your game

    I consider myself to be a good parent.
    I try really hard to teach my son to be kind, try hard in school, be a good sport and eat his vegetables (even if they are served with Pizza Rolls).
    I try to be a good parent, but I fully admit, I fail sometimes.
    Recently, I got a serious wakeup call and reminder that I need to step up my parenting game.

  • Share your thoughts at legislative coffee Jan. 6

    I would like to start this article by wishing each of you a Merry Christmas and thanking you for allowing me to serve as your state senator. This year has flown by starting with a productive 2017 session of the Kentucky General Assembly, followed by a busy interim break, new senate leadership elections, and talks of pension reform. Many of you have offered constructive feedback and opinions that I have taken to heart as we begin to craft legislation for the 2018 budget session.

  • Children are searching for their forever homes

    November is National Adoption Month, and though the month-long observance is an important conversation starter, it can’t fully convey the ongoing and unmet needs of children searching for their forever homes. During this season of giving and gratitude, the truth is that more than 7,000 kids in Kentucky will spend the holidays in the care of someone other than their family of origin.

  • Me, too

    I debated writing this, but the ongoing news about prominent men being accused of sexual harassment has been weighing heavily on my mind and my conscience.
    I’ve heard several people recently ask the question, “Why are so many women speaking out about sexual harassment now?”
    My response: “Who cares!”
    Women finally feel brave enough to speak out – that’s a good thing.
    And, when one woman speaks out, it emboldens the rest of us.
    But, honestly, I wish we would have spoken out sooner.
