Why I am running to be your next State Representative 

For some time now, I have been thinking about how I could have a greater impact and expand my work for positive change. I understand firsthand how important it is to have sound, effective and equitable policies.

I have the desire, interest and skill of being a good listener. I have the personal and professional experiences to be a good advocate and fight for our welfare and I am invested personally in improving our quality of life, especially for our future generation, which includes my two sons.

Thank You in advance for your partnership, encouragement and generous support. It will be my honor to represent you and our community!
