As your State Senator, keeping our community safe is my top priority. Earlier this year, I supported the Victim’s Justice Agenda and have been working to assure that the victims’ voices are heard. The Victims’ Justice Agenda creates a violent offender registry, strengthens sentencing for murderers and repeat violent offenders, gives victims and their families a voice at parole hearings and creates new parole board guidelines to keep dangerous criminals behind bars. This is the reform we need to keep our communities safe.
