Statement: As a representative of the people, it will be my honor and duty to serve all of the diverse communities within our district, and to uphold and defend our State and US Constitutional and civil rights. I believe that the building blocks of society are strong families and engaged communities and our future generations deserve to inherit a world better than we found it.
Among the biggest problems plaguing our communities is equal access to justice and fair representation. Our three branches of government were intended to serve and protect all of us, not to be exploited by the wealthy and well connected, focused on the special interests of a few, or to serve only the majority. The protection of the rights of each individual citizen is inherent in our system of Government. As your State Senator, I will work to bring the integrity of government and justice back to Washington.
Diverse educational options, affordable housing, job opportunities, protecting small businesses, low taxes, and justice reform are among my top priorities. Tackling social issues are best addressed by empowering non-profit organizations rather than big government and excessive taxation. I look forward to serving as your Senator for District 27.
