I am running on a platform of three main issues: Worker's Rights , Education, and Healthcare. As an IBEW electrician, I believe that working families should not struggle to make ends meet and I will fight for fair wages and more local jobs. As a school board member, I have fought to make the best of a budget that hasn't been properly funded by the state in decades. When it comes to healthcare, families should not have to worry about going into debt just to get medical care. Quality and affordable healthcare is a right that every citizen deserves.
There are many challenges currently facing the state and it will take a lot of time to fix them. That is why it is important to collaborate with all stakeholders in making our great state even better. Being open-mind and reaching across the aisle are critical because one legislator can't solve the challenges we face on their own. It takes a majority of people to be interested in bettering our state for progress to be made.

There are a few ways we could approach the challenges facing our state and I will consider all reasonable proposals as a state legislator. To start with, though, we must re-examine the budget we pass every year and make tough decisions about the way we distribute tax relief. Too many working families find themselves struggling to make ends meet while out-of-state corporations receive tax break after tax break that never makes it back around to families in our state. Starting here would mean we can have the resources to help working families first.
