Â His district has similar problems as ours but in a more urban setting which will provide an opportunity to collaborate on budget and legislative policies.â€ he concluded.

The Speaker shares the duties and responsibilities of all Assembly Members and has committed to a diverse agenda that will address issues such as poverty and water.
