The inaugural year of the 20th District Youth Advisory Council was a hit, and I am excited to continue to welcome young people to get involved in the policymaking process.

As your State Senator, I am deeply committed to shared governance and seek your partnership to ensure that your perspective is included in policy making and that we are centering the voices and perspectives of individuals who live in the 20th district. Additionally, I am invested in your leadership journey and hope that you are able to both gain from this experience and contribute to making our government more people and planet centered.
