Christmas is just a couple days away, and I wanted to take a second to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. I'm sure I'll see some of you in the church pews this weekend as we give thanks for the birth of Christ. While you're reflecting on the reason we celebrate, say a quick prayer for the families who are experiencing hardship this year. And, I hope everyone gets a chance to brighten someone's Christmas Day. Part of our tradition is driving around town delivering cookies to all the people who have been part of our lives in Little Falls. It seems the list grows every year.
The end of year means we'll be starting the legislative session soon. On the horizon are some big tasks like healthcare reform, creating a balanced budget, and providing middle class tax relief. I welcome your input on these issues, or any other ways I can help you or your family.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Again, Merry Christmas to you and yours!
