September 20, 2017 – E-Newsletter

Dear Constituent:

I hope this message finds you and your family well and that you are enjoying these last warm days of summer.

Especially at this time of year, it is important to remind ourselves to stay safe while driving our children to school. You may have noticed “Slow Down Signs” on the lawns near schools. These serve to remind passing motorists that they are in a school zone and must slow down. If you would like a “Slow Down Sign” delivered to your home for use on your lawn, please click here.
