We need a representative with integrity who will proactively advocate for our district to secure our fair share of resources. As representative for the 9th district, I will fight for legislation that ensures everyone has access to affordable quality healthcare, restores our public schools, increases public safety, creates living wage jobs, and leads to strong economic development in our community.”
“The 9th district deserves better and I intend to work hard to earn the trust and support of my neighbors so that I am afforded the opportunity to demonstrate what an effective and dedicated representative looks like.”
