Thankful for District K

Thank you District K! I am still this excited about the opportunity to represent such an incredible district. As much as I love campaigning and talking to residents, it felt good to wake up unopposed today. I must thank my staff for their dedicated efforts every day. I could not do the work of our constituents without each of them. We have four more years to deliver exceptional service and continue to improve our community. Let’s make historic moves together.

We did it again! #DistrictK 💚
