What do you hope to accomplish in the 2018 session?
The No. 1 policy priority for me this year is to fix a loophole in our state's sex offender laws. A constituent in my district had to live through the nightmare of her offender moving in next door. We already have laws on the books to prevent sex offenders from living within a certain radius of schools, playgrounds, etc. Sen. Leewright and I would simply like to add the residence of a victim to those prohibited living areas.
What do you hope the Legislature will accomplish?
Hopefully the Legislature will address our budget crisis and provide long-term solutions. In 2017 there were too many lines in the sand. These lines do nothing but pull our state apart. No one needs to compromise their principles, but we must exhibit the principle of compromise without compromising our principles.
What should people know about you?
Personally, my faith and family are what is most important. As a legislator, it is standing up for rural Oklahoma, workforce development through CareerTech education and helping constituents with various issues as they arise.
