Here are the most recent questions and answers:
Q: Do you still find it as rewarding today as you did when you were first elected?
A: I find it more rewarding. I have been incredibly privileged to represent the community I grew up in and fight for the things we all believe are important, such as education, the economy and jobs, and the safety of our community.
Q: I’m thinking of running for the State Assembly someday. Do you have any tips or suggestions on how to get started?
A: When I first thought about running, I made a list of why I wanted to run, the positive changes I wanted to make and how my experience and passion could turn those positive changes in to reality. If I were you, that’s where I would start. Then, after you have that down on paper, talk to your family and friends and earn their support. From there, hit the campaign trail! Good luck!
Q: I’m the mother of a young child and I can’t imagine a day without her. How do your two young children cope when you’re in Carson City for four months for the legislative session?
A: It’s probably a lot tougher for me than for my kids – they have grown up with me as a state legislator. But I certainly miss taking them to their Taekwondo lessons and miss hearing about their day at school. It’s definitely a sacrifice, but I hope it teaches them the importance of giving back to our community and the pride, hard work and importance of public service.
Q: It seems like every year politicians tell us, the voters, how important it is to vote and how this election is the most important election ever. Is this what you believe?
A: Yes, this is what I believe. Now, let me tell you why. The laws that govern our state, and our country, are always changing to tackle the tough challenges we face. For some voters, the most important decision a lawmaker will make are changes to the laws that govern the economy, terrorism or crime – and for other voters, it may be local changes like speed bumps, turnarounds or bicycle lanes. Each election cycle determines who will make these changes. Which, for me, means each election is more important than the last, because each election affects the future success of our state and country.
