State Senator Ellie Kinnaird announced today that she will seek another term in the Senate. A statement accompanying the announcement reads in part:
â€œThis last term has been a challenge for the State budget, just like it has for families throughout the state, but I have been able to provide the leadership to write and guide legislation benefiting every person in the district and in the state. Building on my past work, I want to further encourage the development of alternative energy and energy efficiency to improve our people’s health and economic security. The mental health crisis is not yet behind us and I want to improve the situation as best we can in these lean times. There is also more to do to help our families and youth in their interactions with state agencies and the completion of a system-wide electronic criminal justice network will help prevent dangerous criminals from getting lost between agencies in the system. Most importantly, we must embark on tax reform to make the system fair while providing necessary services to our citizens in severe economic and fiscal downturns.”
