Current Job Employment Law Attorney, Kentucky Equal Justice Center State Representative, KY House District 38
I am running to continue the work that I have started, both in policy making and for constituents. As a legislator, I have sponsored or co-sponsored bills relating to healthcare, employment law, elections, transportation and much more. I serve on the House Natural Resources and Energy; Judiciary; Economic Development and Workforce Investment and Elections, Constitutional Amendments and Intergovernmental Affairs Committees. I also work hard to be responsive to constituent concerns, which may be navigating a state or local office or community improvement project. Most of all, I am running for the second time because I am proud of my legislative record, hard work and belief that a better Kentucky is ahead.
I have knocked on thousands of doors reminding voters about the November 6th election. I have also promoted on social media to get more people registered to vote and update their registration.
