Candidate surveys are starting to arrive in the mail. So far all are from out-of-state special-interest groups. As a rule, I do not respond to these surveys. First, my job is to represent the people who live in District 24. I want to hear from my constituents and listen to their interests and concerns. Second, I promise to never judge a bill by its title. I cannot in good faith pledge to support something until I have actually read the proposed legislation.
