Substitute Teacher, JCPS
I am running for Re-Election because of an abiding commitment to help shape the political landscape of our Commonwealth; my belief that I have unfinished business to conduct in terms of my contribution to the future of this state and my belief that I am the best, most experienced and knowledgeable person to serve the Commonwealth as State Representative for the 42nd District
I will continue to sponsor and support legislation which makes voting a more inclusive process; I will continue to challenge legislation and policies which inhibits access to and participation in the electoral process and, lastly, I will continue educating voters to be knowledgeable consumers of our Democracy. In these ways, my work will be inside and outside the system and I will lead by example.
