In late October, I had the extreme honor to introduce and present the President of the United States Donald Trump with the 2019 Bipartisan Justice Award for his effort and great strides in criminal justice reform. Criminal justice reform is a very complex matter that I am very passionate about and have focused on during my time in the State Legislature. Being chosen to present the 2019 Bipartisan Justice Award to President Trump was the honor of a lifetime, and an experience I will not soon forget.

I want to thank the 20/20 Bipartisan Justice Center for inviting me to speak on this stage and present this award, and I would like to thank President Trump for his graciousness and his kind words. May Democrats and Republicans alike continue to seek true and fair criminal justice reform for all Americans!!
