Hit the Ground Running  

Oath of Office

I would like to begin by thanking everyone who voted for me to fill the spot vacated by Scott Fitzgerald as the Senator for the 13th Senate District. I am grateful for the opportunity to represent our area and interests in Madison. I have been assigned to the following committees:

  • Senate Committee on Education
  • Senate Committee on Financial Institutions and Revenue (which I will serve on as vice-chair)
  • Senate Committee on Housing, Commerce and Trade (which I will Chair)
  • Senate Committee on Insurance, Licensing and Forestry
  • Senate Committee on Sporting Heritage, Small Business and Rural Issues

We are wasting no time in the Senate! In addition to my committee obligations, my staff and I are working on updating my website and social media, planning budget listening sessions, and, of course, resuming our E-updates!

My new contact information is:
