Campaign Website
Taking back our towns from corporations - by enacting legislation to hold large corporations accountable for their impact on our environment & legislation closing loop holes in corporate taxes.

Improving the quality & affordability of living in our areas - legislation to hold and limit out of state LLC's buying our housing and avoiding taxes and property responsibility all while driving up our local cost and availability for affordable housing.

Nurture our neighborhoods and residents - by using funds collected from corporate tax reform.

Advocate and affirm equal rights for ALL people, including women's right to make their own healthcare choices, and all other people regardless of their own unique attributes.
Same day voter registration, automatic voter registration, restore rights to felons who have completed their sentence, on-line voting, early voting, vote by mail, flexible election day options, accessible voting locations.

security would be managed by affording more funding to our election administrations, so that they could manage and continually update voter records. Additional securities would be dependent on the specific type of voting. For example for on-line voting, there would be a series of security methods such as encryption to ensure the person who is voting is really the person stated. Mail in voting already has security measures in place, those measures can be further reviewed as needed.
I would support legislation that makes rational sense, has more funding from the state and that has equitable distribution of funds across all public schools.
First solidify into law that abortion is a Woman's personal healthcare decision and no one else's decision or any entities decision to make or force onto her.

Current restrictions that need to be removed are - mandatory waiting period after consultation, health exchange (or Medicaid, or public employee) health plan restrictions for payment, and mandatory parental consent.

We also need to stop using public funds for "fake" crisis pregnancy centers that pray on vulnerable women.
