State Senate: Brown

August 4, 2013 

I am writing this letter in support of state Sen. Sharon Brown.

Brown truly cares about her constituents. She had visited with me one weekend when she was back in our district and I had the opportunity to express my concerns to her about certain areas in the practice of medicine that I thought needed to be changed.

Several weeks later, I was surprised when Sharon called me from the Senate floor because legislation was being debated and she knew that it would be of concern to me based on our prior discussion. We were able to craft an amendment to the legislation while it was being debated which she was able to successfully attach to the bill.

I was very impressed that not only did she remember our prior discussions but she proactively called me and we worked collaboratively on solving the problem. The fact that Sharon was able to get our amendment onto the bill before the legislation passed is a testament to her ability and tenacity to get things done. This district needs to return Sharon Brown to the state Senate.
