Constituent Survey Results: Government Reform a Top Priority

In my Fall 2013 newsletter, I asked constituents to let me know what issues were important to them by ranking a provided list from 1-10. We received hundreds of responses from constituents, and the majority agreed that government reform should be the top legislative issue.

Government reform is one of my top priorities too. I have created a bipartisan, bicameral Government Reform Caucus to focus on this issue. We meet monthly to discuss our shared commitment to bringing fundamental reforms to state government.

I am trying to lead by example as well. I do not accept mid-term cost-of-living raises, per diems or mileage reimbursement, and I do not use a state-owned or state-leased vehicle.

My office will keep the public informed on ongoing efforts to improve how our government operates.

Here are the full survey results:

  1. Government Reform (1,157 votes)
  2. Education (1,081 votes)
  3. Job Creation / Economic Development (1,050 votes)
  4. Healthcare (1,024 votes)
  5. Taxes (1,006 votes)
  6. Social Services / Poverty (792 votes)
  7. Transportation / Infrastructure (788 votes)
  8. Veterans (787 votes)
  9. Environment / Conservation (769 votes)
  10. Civil Rights (628 votes)
