I want to take an opportunity to thank everyone who help with my re-election and who voted for me in November of 2014. With your support, I was able to win my third re-election to the state Senate and can continue to fight to lower taxes on families, working people and business owners, while reducing wasteful spending in Harrisburg and promoting economic growth and job creation.  
As your state Senator for the 16th District, I will continue to support a more fiscally-responsible and less-restrictive state government that helps create jobs, foster a growing economy and makes Pennsylvania a more affordable and enjoyable place to live and work.
