When I started this campaign, I had truly prioritized equal rights, and that the pursuit of happiness are guaranteed for all people regardless of their skin color, sexual orientation, gender, or religious preference. This commitment has evolved and gotten a bit more specific in light of the COVID 19 pandemic and what our current economy is facing. First, My number one goal is to represent the will of all the people of my district, with specific emphasis on representing ALL persons and limiting it to only those that agree with my belief set.
Given the reality of COVID-19, we are going to need to work towards securing a post-COVID economy based in reality, science and safety, not miracle cures and denial. This will result in improvement in critical infrastructure like communication resources (internet and cellular technology) within the district. A significant portion of HD39 lacks broadband or reliable cellular access. Further, we need to meet the needs of the small businesses within the district to ensure they not only survive COVID, but can thrive in the aftermath. I think we can do this by offering small businesses priority opportunities for bidding on government projects, and continuing to support their needs directly, and not prioritizing the needs of large corporations over the needs of small businesses.
Background 20 years in human services and education.
My number one priority is to raise awareness that there are excellent candidates all over this country who aren’t Democrats or Republicans. What we’ve been doing within the current two party system clearly isn’t working. It’s time to start electing people who don’t have an R or a D after their names, people who can bring new ideas and perspectives and perhaps help bridge the huge gap between right vs left.
The only way to undo the damage already done by COVID 19 is to lift the restrictions from businesses. Allow all businesses to operate normally with safety precautions they feel appropriate. Perhaps incentives for new businesses to open would also be appropriate, tax breaks, reduced fees and requirements that make starting and operating new businesses difficult.
