The biggest challenges are dealing with this COVID-19 pandemic and it's fall out. This disease has shown us all the weaknesses in our social systems. We need to overhaul our health care system, education system and housing so that all people in America have an opportunity to thrive in this the greatest country in the world.

I plan to work with those in Congress who want to make sure all our people are healthy, well educated and make enough money to pay their bills on legislation that would ease the acute phase of this virus and then work on the chronic phase going into the future. I think it is the responsibility of Congresspeople to work to make lives less burdensome in this country.
I think the federal government can provide leadership, oversight, funding and training to create an equitable public education for all students. The federal government should create policies that root out systemic racism in our school system and provide funding to bring low performing schools up.The federal government should set policy priorities that can be scaled to fit the needs of states and school districts. Furthermore, the federal government can set training and salary requirements that can also be scaled by school district and state. The overarching goal should be to prepare students for the future. They are worth the investment
We need to reform our immigration system. It is not working for anyone. I would support amending visa caps and provide funding to relieve the backlog of immigrants waiting for entry. I would support eliminating the 10-year bar requiring immigrants to return to their country of origin to await acceptance in the US. I would like to make the path to citizenship shorter and easier for people seeking a new life in the US.
Systemic racism is embedded in our enabling documents, laws, rules and regulations. In order to promote social & racial justice, we need to make sure laws that are passed do not adversely affect BIPOC. Such a law was introduced in the 116th Congress called Environmental Justice for All. I would support this bill. I would vote for the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. I would work to make housing more affordable by increasing grants and low interest loans to developers to create more housing affordability.
I will always support legislation that seeks to lower cost and barriers to health care for all Americans. I think we need to work on the food system to make sure healthy foods are affordable and available to all people. We need to provide the opportunity for people to take care of their personal physical health safely by funding more parks and recreation areas as well as sidewalks for those who live in suburban areas.
