    My motivation to come to Washington comes from my desire to serve the people of the First District every day. I am dedicated to getting real results to create a better Commonwealth and nation. However, the last few months have been completely dominated by a partisan impeachment process – causing legislating and productivity to come to a screeching halt.

    We have a tradition in my family on Thanksgiving. We all sit down at the table, and before we start eating the beautifully prepared feast, we go around and say what we are thankful for. Well this year, I wanted to do the same thing for work as I do for family - look back through 2019 to think about what I am most thankful for. As I reflected on this year, I thought about all that we have accomplished and all that still can be done. From the outset of 2019, I made it a priority to work on the iss... Read more

That is why this week I joined with my colleagues to restart the Suburban Caucus - to fight for these suburban families. Our new Caucus will address the challen... Read more
