Candidate Statement

I am running to give District 136 voters a new voice. Voters familiar with me know that they have my strong voice at the table, and they have kept me in elected office since 2000. Now I would like to hear what you want to see me attend to in Augusta, should you grant me the opportunity to continue serving you there. In these times of isolation and concern about our future, I will support and work hard on legislation that would improve all of our situations through the lens of racial equality, and that promotes community employment, housing, preventative healthcare, food security, water quality protection, and restorative practices, without having to commute miles to obtain these – a scenario I call sustainable communities.
