The 2020 election is over. I am honored that you have chosen to send me to Juneau to represent the people of District 23 in the Alaska State Legislature. Thank you. Now it's time to get to work.

Our nation, our state, and our city face immediate and daunting challenges. The coronavirus is spreading and leaving devastation in its wake. Right now, too many Alaskans are sick, hungry, and unemployed.

I have been urging my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to put aside political grievances and instead focus on helping people. Whether its in a special session or early in the regular session in January, lawmakers should pass a COVID-19 relief package that gives schools the resources to safely reopen and keeps small businesses viable until things get back to normal. We must also make sure our healthcare professionals and first responders have everything they need to distribute a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it's ready.

I'm here to serve you. If you have questions or concerns, please contact my office at or call (907) 269-0240.

Please be safe,
