When I decided to run for the Legislature, an issue that concerned me was the spiraling-out-of-control cost of postsecondary education, the lack of public oversight and measurement of the return on investment to taxpayers and students.

My pursuit has given me a unique perspective on the importance of accountability and outcome-oriented policies when it comes to big government spending.
