What is one life experience you have that voters should know about?

I am an experienced problem solver.

What sets you apart from other candidates?

As a military veteran, single parent, grandparent, female with a Master's degree in I/O Psychology, I know struggle because I live it. So as a candidate I am very similar and related on to those that I will be serving.

How do you plan to work across ideological lines to achieve shared goals?

Every aspect of my life, from work to figuring out how to raise a child as a single parent while attending graduate school has given me the tools to be able to communicate with and compromise with others regardless of background and ideological differences. As your state representative, I will work across lines because I work for you and to do so effectively I will need to work across lines. I will do so by listening, understanding everyone's point of view, and then working with others to come up with the most reasonable solution that will benefit the majority of constituents.

What would be your top three policy priorities in office?

Equal Rights, Environment, & Social Programs (e.g., public education, assistance programs for military, aged, disabled, disadvantaged, etc., housing...).

The Committee of Seventy has partnered with the Carter Center to promote the Candidate Principles for Trusted Elections (www.principledcandidates.org) to improve the voting process, encourage honest leadership, and promote civic engagement. Do you support the Candidate Principles? 

Yes. Too many candidates as of late on all sides of the isle have displayed a lack of principles, integrity and overall lack of respect for those they are supposed to be serving.
