According to the Las Vegas Sun on May 15, 2017 women in this state ranked 43rd in the nation for inequalities. We face poverty; reproductive rights; health and well-fare being and of course gender inequality is the root cause of violence against girls and young women. As an elected, I will continue the work that the precious session started; they enacted several laws to protect women, and women's rights. Especially, when the women who are running for office in this state win, we will make up a female majority in the State Legislature. With that in place, the female majority can enact laws to protect women; advance and assist poverty and education.
Dedicating money within the DSA to go towards schools. Maybe an additional sales tax on the recreational marijuana. And creating a rainy day fund for education. I am running on the fact that we include Pre-K in our public schools. I have 59% of my 3 and 4 year olds in AD 4 that do not and can not afford a Pre-K. Schools are in disrepair in this state, we also need: 1. An audit from the top down to see where the money is going. 2. Revise the "Nevada Plan": to fit the 21st Century. This plan is over 50 years old, needs to go.
I believe we need to emphasize jobs and economy. Hard work should be rewarded, and no one who works more than 40 hours a week should live in poverty. I do support increasing the minimum wage to a livable wage. I will fight for equal pay for equal work, and for paid family leave. I believe we can raise the minimum wage; work across the isle to make sure that the "mom and pop" businesses don't go broke; and build the clean and renewable energy economy, for jobs in the future. I was a small business owner for years, I understand business-and the impact raising the minimum wage could have on those businesses-however, to build a economy, we need workers who can make a living wage.
Being a registered gun owner for more than 40 years, I do believe that we need background checks.It isn't right that felons, domestic abusers and the mentally ill should have unfettered access to weapons. During my time as a mental health professional, I had two of my clients gain access to guns-and kill themselves, so this is personal to me. I feel we were lucky, that they didn't shoot someone else. Children in schools shouldn't have to worry about their safety.
Trump's immigration policies are awful. States assume a largely supportive role, enacting their own supplementary laws and setting policies that may, for example, determine which public services immigrants can access, establish employee screening requirements, or guide the interaction between related state agencies and their federal counterparts.As of October 2016. Nevada did not allow lawfully residing immigrants to enroll in Medicaid or CHIP. We need to make affordable and accessible health care to all. 26.8% in my district are below poverty level; 17% are Hispanic or Latino; Immigrants are a vital part of the state’s labor force across sectors, accounting for nearly 40 percent of all workers.
