For most of you, I am your representative in the Arizona House. For long-term LD9 residents, think of my Powers For The People blog and video updates as my version of the Farley Report. Senator Steve Farley emailed the Farley Report to constituents every week that he served in the Legislature.

For all of you, whether or not you live in my district, I am your embedded journalist– your eyes, your ears, and your voice– in the Arizona Legislature.
