What piece of legislation during the last term are you most proud of writing or sponsoring? Why?
I filed and co-sponsored legislation and budget amendments on financial literacy. The Financial Literacy pilot program was included in the budget and will bring finance-based lessons to public schools in 10 Gateway Cities next fall. This is an initiative started by my predecessor Sue Tucker, and I was able to get it done.
In a nutshell, what makes you a better candidate than your opponent?
I am a consistent and respected voice for Andover in the Senate. I am trustworthy and honest about my intentions and votes. I am working hard and getting the job done for the town.
