Statement: As a Mother and an active member in my community, I simply do not believe my neighbors are being fairly represented. I am running for office to ensure our voice will be heard. I was raised in poverty and know tough times. We need someone in this seat who remembers to serve the people in this district.
No one should be taxed out of their home, all children should attend safe schools, and everyone should have access to clean air and water and be given the opportunity to thrive. We deserve better from our representatives; I will do better.
