She says the economy and public safety are the biggest issues facing the state.  She is a certified public accountant and wife of a retired police officer, who owns and operate Breezy Knoll Farm.  In the most recent General Assembly session, Harrison served on the legislature’s Appropriations Committee, Environment Committee and Transportation Committee.
