To serve my community and state.
I need to see the results of 2020's VBM initiative before I make a decision. For future VBM, I would require a photocopy of valid identification with the mail in ballot.
Our state should have the confidence in their elected officials and their obligation to create fair election district boundaries.
I have hosted community town halls with law enforcement and will continue these efforts. I have supported law enforcement with their National Night Out efforts, school supply drives, Walk a Mile in their Shoes events, honorary commander program, and their own community events.
We can make a difference in people's lives when we treat all people the same, regardless of their race.
I am opposed to the RPS and the increase to it
We should make our Community Transportation Funds information accessible without FOIA.
