On Thursday March 22nd, I gave a speech on the Assembly floor calling for more emotional safety in our schools. In the wake of school shootings across the country, the mental health of our students has not been addressed enough. Moving forward, the emotional safety of our children and students must be strengthened.
On Thursday, February 22nd, I welcomed Milton Police Officer Lindsey Bittorf and her family to the Capitol to accept the Hometown Hero Award. Officer Bittorf donated a kidney to 8-year-old Jackson Arneson, who she had not previously met. Jackson and his family will be attended the award presentation as well.
