A time to reflect on the year

Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year. It is a time to spend with family and friends and to celebrate the birth of our savior. It is also a time to reflect back over the past year and to begin to plan for the year ahead. This season I have taken time to look back over my first term serving as your State Representative.

I figured it was the Environmental Protection Agency coming to talk to me about polluting the toxic waste site with fruit cakes.
