Current Job State Representative, 44th House District 1995-present
I am running to continue my strong advocacy for the 44th District, Metro Louisville, the Commonwealth of Ky and its citizens. I have a record of fighting for working people, children, public education, victims of crime and all those who may feel marginalized in our society. I am running to continue to work on child welfare reform, finding solutions to Ky’s Opiod epidemic and strengthening our public healthcare system.
I am running a positive and vigorous campaign in the 44th District - knocking doors and direct mail to engage with voters and encourage participation in this November's Election and future elections.
