"I come from a family that has been involved with church and public service for as long as I can remember. I want to work for you. We need to improve our schools, protect the rights for all, not just for the few, seek criminal reform, make healthcare for all a top priority. With nearly two-decades of accounting experience, small business ownership, wife, and mother I know what it takes to find solutions, navigate the complicated governmental agencies, and get things done."
LIST OF ISSUES
Education is the great equalizer. Every child should have an equal opportunity for a world-class education
You can't expect world-class education if you don't fund it. You can't expect a car to run with just the engine block. You need all the parts of the car to make it work. The same goes for schools.
Teachers need to be paid a living wage, staffed completely, offered Assistant teachers to help, reduce all class sizes, give them the tools they need and continuing education to keep them up to date.
Love is Love
Racism has no place in society. However, it exists and runs more freely in this current climate. Institutional racism needs to be brought to light and addressed creating laws as they are needed.
When we are a county not divided by the railroad tracks then our work will be done.
Everyone deserves access to healthcare, period.
Why mental health, dental and vision are separate from other health care is beyond me. Therapy should be available without limitations. More options for those who need intense help is needed.
This is the most sacred part of our democracy and some Americans are actively trying to keep some from voting. I will do everything possible at the county level to ensure everyone has to opportunity.
Criminal Justice Reform
Our jails are filled with non-violent criminals that need solutions to their lives and not jail time. Drug addiction, mental illness, and minor possessions are all solvable issues without jail.
