This year has not been easy for any of us, but for many people in our community it’s been incredibly difficult. However, the meaning of Christmas Day is unchanged - it’s still about God coming to earth in the most humble way possible, as a baby born to extremely poor parents in a stable where animals sleep. The birth of Jesus is the source of hope, life and joy all over the world. I hope you and your loved ones have a blessed Christmas and New Year holiday season. Together, we can all take time to give thanks for our blessings and pray for 2021 to be much better.
Thank you also for the honor of serving you in the State Senate. As the new year begins I look forward to continuing to fight for the values that we know will make our state a place where families and retirees can afford to live and businesses can grow and thrive. I look forward to updating you further in January.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
