Please be sure to see our Take Action page, it has a list of contact information for many of the officials in our state.  Also, take a moment to look at the County Connect page.  There you can see who is willing to network in your area.  Contact me to add your name to the list.

Conforming has never been a strong suite of mine.  I hope you will join me.
