Here’s my family – my daughters Ashley and Lindsay and my lovely wife Caroline – I couldn’t be prouder!
It has been a wonderful experience having our two daughters born and raised in Burlington. My family has been very supportive of me throughout my political career – especially Caroline who attends most special events with me.
