Bad news gets headlines and good news gets buried; therefore, I am committed to keep you informed on issues and tell you "the rest of the story."

My goal is to give you a front row seat into your government and a critical analysis of how decisions are made so that you can spot political agendas, separate fact from fiction, and draw your own conclusions.
