In these troubling times facing our nation, we are tasked with finding ways to make sure state laws and policies are fair. One of the most fundamental and easiest thing we can do is make make voting accessible to all. What needs to be in place are policies that ensure no matter what crises we are faced with, all elections are protected for voters to have safe and fair processes for all to vote.
Solutions for addressing our healthcare system have always been a priority. Healthcare in my opinion is something that should not have space for politics but unfortunately have controlled the process. Simply put, I believe all Ohioans should have access to affordable healthcare that addresses all families. The right to affordable healthcare is the right thing to do and something that party affiliation should not have a role in.
Gerrymandering has been a major issue in Ohio. Ensuring that voters have to opportunity to vote for the best representation is extremely important to ensuring fair elections. I will continue to support all efforts to ensure Hamilton County and all Ohio voters have fair districts. I will also continue to commit to working with parters who are working for fair districts and work to purpose legislation that support those efforts.
Criminal justice reform is something we have a lot of work to do in order to be a state where people are treated fairly. I support policies that will give individuals the opportunity that be faced with a system that treats them fairly and gives them a honest chance as a returning citizen. We have the opportunity to allow citizens to return to society and provide them with resources and options that gives them a sense of dignity and pride to be a productive citizen. This area is a priority for me

Many depend on the US mail, so during these times I would have more temporary help added to US mail service. Also have the mail service to stay open 24/7 to ensure all mail is delivered on time. The counting of voted to be extended until the next morning around 5 or 6:o'clock. The board of Election to hire more help and extended hours also on election day. Special bus service on election day to and from polls.
The cost of medication in the USA is a health care issue especially for our senior citizens. Many times their pills are broken in half to make them last until they receive the next months social security check. Many must make the decision to buy food or their medication. I would look into the method used when an insurance company pays for a drug it is much less than when an individual pays for the same drug. I do consider this to be an inequality in the healthcare system.
I will push for a fairer distribution percentage by voters in district regardless of party affiliation.
The policies around criminal justice reform is correcting some social economic conditions in our every day society. racism, income inequality,a fairer justice system from the bottom up. The violence that is condoned within our systems must be addressed. R evaluate how we appoint lawyers for those who cannot afford a lawyer. We need to revisit the rules around our parole system.
