I have lived in Legislative District 9 since the 1980s. Gabrielle Giffords was my legislator and my Congresswoman. Many times over the years, I called her or sent her email about bills that were under consideration. Often I would write to her after 9 p.m., and she would write right back. (Impressive in the days before smart phones or decent laptops.) I didn’t always agree with Gabby, but I always believed that she listened to me.. an unnamed voter… and was thoughtful in her votes.

One thing the voters will always know about me is my opinion. As with my relationship with Gabby, you may not always agree with me, but you will know that I put thought into my decisions and that I will vote with the people’s interests in mind. Also– let’s talk. I am always willing to listen and discuss ideas, facts, and plans
