Will Always Fight
This November I am encouraging voters to support our State Representative, Devin Carney, for re-election. His dedication to public safety is well-documented in the bills he has proposed and supported.
He recently helped pass a bipartisan public safety bill to reduce car break-ins, home invasions, and catalytic converter thefts. He understands that residents want to know that they and their families are safe.
Devin has also worked for positive legislation regarding school safety and resource officers. When there was a push to eliminate school resource officers from the state, Devin stood up and fought to keep them and blocked legislation that would have compromised the safety of our students and teachers.
In addition, Devin proposed amending a bill regarding firearm storeage with measures to increase the penalties for stealing firearms; unfortunately, his proposal was defeated with all Democrats voting no. I applaud Devin for standing up and trying to do the right thing despite the majority opposition to a common sense approach to safety.
He will always fight for our local safety and for the safety of our area children and that’s just one of many reasons why he deserves to be re-elected on Tuesday, Nov. 8.
