Many politicians do seek input from their constituency. This is very good. However, very few provide much, if any, communication back to those they are to represent. They hold various meetings behind closed doors. What was discussed?

We have a system of representative government. True representation, however, requires transparency and two-way communication.

I hereby vow to conduct my campaign and my service in office as transparently as possible. I will share information regarding the topics and substance of all meetings, conversations and communications which relate to any work I do as your State Senator.

I hereby vow to communicate with those I represent, to provide them with information as issues, bills and conversations evolve, to listen to the true desires of the majority of those I represent, to vote according to my constituents viewpoints.

I ask only the you, too, participate in this process and provide me with true information such that I may take good action.
