Thank you for the opportunity to serve you in the State Senate. It is an honor to represent Senate District 32 at the Capitol. Over the past month I have received many calls, emails, and social media messages concerning this past election and questions regarding the role the General Assembly plays in this process. I have tried to get back to as many folks as possible, but I know I have missed many of you. I apologize that I have not been able to engage with everyone on an individual basis.
Recently, some of my colleagues started a petition for a special session of the General Assembly. I joined these colleagues along with the other members of the majority caucus in the State Senate to discuss this petition in detail, but we decided to go a different direction as a group. We listed seven specific action items we are undertaking to address the concerns we have heard.

As I stated earlier, I have received many messages and calls concerning this past election and I am trying to respond to as many of my constituents as I can. However, there are some elected officials that are being threatened. Let me be clear when I say that violence and threats are never okay with me.
The legal process must be followed not only because that is the right thing to do, but it is the only way to address the challenges that have been cited. I am working every day to get to the truth in order to protect our legal votes.
