I met with Sen. Tom Martin, R-District 25, several times to enlighten him about issues that are important to me.

He listened to my concerns about various bills but was non-committal,explaining that he had to learn more as these bills were brought forward.

Once the bills landed in the appropriate committee, I continued to discuss my concerns with him. He said he would not support cuts to the elderly or legislation that had a negative impact on injured workers.

After pressure from the administration, he voted with his partisan cronies. That is an insult to his constituents and is contrary to what he committed to. I will not vote for a person who will not stand behind the constituents that he swore to represent. We need to elect a person with a backbone who will represent what the constituents have asked for, not what the governor wants.
