Why I Am Running


It takes special skills to represent a district and affect change to make our community better. I'm running because our district needs people like me who will represent all people, not just one party, who will LISTEN to YOU and LEAD our legislators toward common sense policies that will drive our economy and schools in a forward direction.

Montgomery County is currently represented by only one party. That needs to change because complacency occurs when you don't have challenging ideas. Our Montgomery County Delegation is often stuck in a "group think" mode, voting all together in lockstep and not really considering ideas that Republicans bring to the table. Governor Hogan does a good job listening to the public and bringing forth good ideas to move our state forward, yet these initiatives are met with opposition in Annapolis. I am offering my skills of working with Governor Hogan and our Democrat and Republican representatives to get more things done that will really make a difference. 

I CAN BE A LEADER IN ANNAPOLIS who will focus on families. Families need good jobs, a high quality education experience for their children, a safe home, affordable health care, and improved means of transportation. As an effective education advocate for over 15 years, if you elect me as your State Delegate, I will continue to work hard to represent you and your family.
