My Top 3 Priorities

  • Comprehensive, universal healthcare with major emphasis on preventative care. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
  • Education reforms, emphasis on increasing literacy, job training for the new economy, and building healthy lifestyles.
  • Invest in renewable energy and expansion of all modes of public transportation.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Lifelong activist for the interests of working people, seniors, and children including: universal healthcare, a living wage, nuclear disarmament, education, and criminal justice reform. Fighting against drug company price gouging and profiteering. I believe in investing money in preventative measures because prevention is the only way to reduce more costly intervention such as high school dropout rate, teen pregnancy, disease, premature birth, incarceration rate, homelessness, and opioid crisis. I believe in fiscal responsibility and using our tax dollars for the programs that are working and improving the quality of life for children and adults, eliminate redundant and wasteful programs proven to not be working. We need political, moral, and spiritual awakening as this is the only way to solve the problems in our state, such as income inequality, lack of affordable healthcare coverage, school-to-prison pipeline, and pollution of our environment. Enough is enough, the power is in our hands. When corporate greed and profit are have greater influence on public policy makers, then the government is no longer of, by, and for the people. It is up to us to come together and reclaim our institutions. We should not be influenced to vote based on who is the best funded candidate, we should vote for who is most qualified and aligned with our values.
