Senator Troy Singleton (D7)
Being a “Man of Strength” doesn’t require one to be physically strong; it requires that men be mentally and emotionally strong so that we lead and love with a full heart and an open mind in our homes and our communities. It requires us to denounce domestic violence in all forms.
As a legislator, I have authored a domestic violence focused legislative package – one that seeks better response training for law enforcement, judges and prosecutors; improved standards for intervention programs; establishment of a domestic violence risk assessment program; and creation of an electronic monitoring program for offenders.
But more importantly, as a husband, and a father, I honor my wife and my three children each and every day so that my own sons witness a living example of a healthy and safe relationship. This is truly how I choose to be a “Man of Strength.”
