“Flooding is a huge concern, and I will work to meet with flooding preparedness experts to prioritize funds and come up with effective solutions,” she said in a recent interview.

Mike Schofield, who has lived in District 132 for about 6 years, told Community Impact Newspaper his top priority was reforming the state’s property tax system.
