Thanking Our Veterans
Your Service Will Not Be Forgotten

Dear Neighbors,

Veterans Day is a time for us to come together and honor the sacrifices our veterans and their families have made in defense of our freedom.  Please join me in thanking all veterans and active duty military for their service.  We owe a great debt of gratitude to these men and women, many of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation.

Legislation Would Waive Park Fees For Seniors and Veterans

Last legislative session I introduced House Bill 69, which would waive all state park fees for veterans and seniors over 65.  This would include rental of public use cabins, admission to visitor centers, and use of boat ramps.  I hope to see passage of this legislation in the upcoming session—it is the least we can do for our veterans and seniors.

A Thank You To Veteran’s Memorial Fundraiser Attendees
