It also confirms that my conservative voting record reflects the positions of the people whom I represent. I spend a great deal of time meeting with the residents of the 11th District. I am blessed to have the opportunity to represent them. They are good, decent people and I am grateful for their support. If I am re-elected in November, I look forward to continuing to represent them."
