1) JOBS: to help Montanans flourish in the next decade by supporting legislation to create and protect jobs throughout the District

2) EDUCATION: to ensure that Montana students have the full benefit of technology and the content required by today’s global economy

3) HEALTH CARE: making sure that health care is available, recognizing that the right care early on can reduce more complex and expensive procedures later

4) HOUSING: to support programs that make development of affordable housing attractive both in rural and in-town areas

5) PUBLIC LANDS: to ensure that our public lands stay public, and access to them remains open.
Montana is becoming a key location for renewable energy sources, including wind, solar and hydro. As more investment comes into the state, particularly with wind farms, Montana has the potential to become an exporter of green energy, and help lead the transition from fossil fuels. This can be done in such a way that energy employment and related jobs actually increase in number.
Our society and our economy both benefit from diversity, and Montana should lead the way in removing obstacles to women's participation in all activities, Education is a key part of this, but also providing assistance in areas such as health care and child care, which frequently impact women unfairly.
As the child of teachers, I am convinced that education is the key to all of us creating better lives for ourselves and our families. Pre-K programs should be universal, because these are such formative years in a child's life. Also, our rural schools should have the infrastructure needed, in the form of broadband access and technology platforms, to develop the same skills that our urban students do. The state should be the clearinghouse and subject matter expert on educational technology and content.
Healthcare for all is an investment in the future just as education is. Access to medical care when problems are minor and treatable, as opposed to years later when these problems are severe and costly, make enormous sense. Whether the means of delivery is via the private sector, the public sector, or a combination of the two, is less important than having this care available for all.
