Education

Education

The foundation of our society lies in the education of our future generations. Our children deserve access to quality education at an early age. Currently, our educational system sets students up for failure rather than success. Overcrowded schools, expensive childcare and a lack of affordable higher education are leaving American families without a quality education.

Climate Change

Climate Change

I’m running in order to save our environment, because science says it needs saving. I’m running because congress needs someone who knows how to protect our fields, streams, and backyards from pollutants and toxic industry practices. We need an advocate for our children and for preventative long term solutions that look beyond the next election cycle.
