My Top 3 Priorities

  • Our community is a good place to grow up, and raise a family. I'm committed to keeping it that way. I'll fight to protect our clean air and water and our pristine lakes, rivers, and forests, as well as combat climate change.
  • Access to affordable, high-quality healthcare is critical to the well-being of our community. I'll fight to prevent further cuts, bring down prescription prices, & defend and improve the ACA- stabilizing insurance markets and expanding coverage.
  • Our current representative is inaccessible and is not held accountable to the people of this district. I will open multiple district offices, hold 10 town halls a year, and provide excellent constituent services to our community.
