In addition to her regular legislative duties, over the past two years Joy has:
· published over 45 blogs outlining her position and votes on every issue
· spoken at over a dozen town halls and forums about legislative issues
· visited Blue Valley Schools in the district over 30 times
· answered hundreds of emails from concerned constituents
· met with dozens of advocates on various issues

Bottom line, in order to pay our bills and stop digging a hole in our state budget, during the 2017 session we voted to restore the tax rates to back to 2012 levels and make them retroactive for this first year. This is called responsible government and it was long overdue.
