 LIST OF ISSUES

"Strong Households lead to Stronger Communities."

The origin of the word “economics” stems from the Greek term for “household management.” For our community to be successful, it all starts at home: charity, service, and the strengthening of our nation.

 

This success is achieved through economic policies and practices that directly affect the family. Strong households lead to stronger communities. Strong communities lead to strong cities. Strong cities lead to a strong state. Strong states lead to a strong nation. It’s all connected! If the foundation of this nation and our families is not being supported—or worse, being neglected, deprived, or underserved by our government representatives — we are doing a disservice to our people. Within the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States of America is a clarion reminder for the support of our families:

        “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

The legislative focus of my campaign is derived from the forerunner of the United States Constitution. To bring success to our families, seniors, adults, and youth, I’m focusing on Economic Equity, Education, and Equality.

Economic Equality

 

I will craft and support legislative solutions that:

Creates jobs that lead to careers that provide a fair and living wage for mom, dad, and our college grads.

Creates new pipelines to employment that give students and budding professionals opportunities to earn a certificate in a professional field or to learn a valuable trade.

▪ Extends a hand up for those looking to escape the cycle of poverty and to end their personal experience of homelessness to help them get on their feet and pursue a path of economic vitality and stability.

Returns America to its rich roots of economic vitality by supporting small businesses, entrepreneurs, and innovation.

 

Better connects economic pioneers to capital and existing resources.

 

▪ Provides affordable housing and bolster homelessness prevention. Such legislation will restore the American Dream of working families to own their own home and will bring peace and security to seniors knowing that housing won’t be an issue to worry about.

Education

 

I will craft and support legislative solutions that:

▪ Ensures a quality education for all our young people, preschool to 12th grade, regardless of zip code.

Affords the opportunity for higher education to those that pursue it. A well-educated populace is a well-educated nation, and we need to compete worldwide to remain global innovators.

Prevents our young people from being debilitated by student loan debt.

▪ Uplifts of our primary and secondary school educators. They are tasked with one of the most important assignments in our nation; to prepare the next generation to be a success in their ascent to the places we stand today. Federal support should mirror the gravity of their responsibility.

Equality

 

I will craft and support legislative solutions that:

▪ Ensures that the laws we have in place work equally for everyone who calls our nation home. Work to push criminal justice reform that guarantees that our legal system is balanced and equal in its practices.

Supports our community and first responders in their shared desire for safe communities. I will work on legislation that builds and repairs the bridge of trust between the two that will promote a shared respect and safer neighborhoods.

Erases wage gaps, promotes wealth creation, and reduce the fiscal gap that persists in our nation.

Protects and improves the Affordable Care Act and continue the effort to ensure that the health and wellness of our citizens are not out of reasonable reach.

▪ Provides free and fair practices of immigration reform and supports the young people who know this country as their home, even though they themselves are not recognized with citizenship.

We’ve all heard that saying, “If it doesn’t make dollars, it doesn’t make sense.” Many of the issues that we face today and in our nation’s capitol finds their roots in the lack of common sense and promotion of party sense.

The lack of solutions persists when our leaders start thinking about their personal two cents and not the common cents.

 

We need to get out of our own way. It’s not about you, it’s not about me, it’s about us: all of us, all of the U.S. We don’t pledge allegiance to a party, we pledge to make our nation a more perfect union for our families—today and tomorrow.
