Define what “success” would look like if you are elected to serve your district.
Everyone would have low energy costs, businesses have full employment and fewer government regulations. Our forest products industry would be sustained and our seniors would have the health care and facilities they need and deserve.

Characterize your view on public access to governmental business.
The Legislative Branch is available to the public, but I do wish constituents had more access to the Executive Branch offices.
