Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe in doing the right thing. I have no party preference because of that philosophy. I believe in equality for all, which is the hallmark of democracy. I believe in representing the values of my community.  As a woman, mother, business owner, property owner/investor and life long resident of Redding I am uniquely qualified to represent the district and ensure that our safety and prosperity are restored.
