We are facing a challenging economic recovery from COVID-19, assessing our systems of racial oppression/policing practices, and still need to address the cost and availability of healthcare for all.
My three priorities to address while in office are public education, the economy (including healthcare), and climate change.
I've campaigned on building relationships and having strong communication/listening at the foundation of my platform. I will continue to do this by hosting accessible events for people to participate in, reaching out to constituents with lived experience and expertise in how decisions will have an impact on our community, and I will listen to and consider opposing views in a direct and honest way.
I will support economic recovery by continuing to work at building relationships with folks in the small business community, in healthcare, and with working people in my district. We need to be sure we continue to support the creation of jobs and simultaneously ensuring that we have a trained and ready workforce.
