Statement: Good governance requires good communication. In addition to listening to the views of others, elected officials need an educator’s expertise in presenting ideas, options, and potential outcomes to voters. My goals for communities within the 12th LD include strengthening public schools, providing affordable health care for all, legislating fair immigration policies, and revitalizing local economies. During my long professional career as an educator, I've learned how to bring people together to find solutions for challenging problems.
I’m asking for your vote to serve as a strong, progressive voice fighting for our communities. I will serve with honesty and integrity.
