➢ STRENGTHEN EDUCATION
Fight for our children and schools, address systemic issues, tackle COVID-related
challenges, and build up our most valuable resources.
➢ REBUILDING THE ECONOMY
Take decisive action to restore our economy, prioritize small businesses, incentivize companies looking to relocate to CT, and invest in our transportation infrastructure.
➢ STAND UP FOR OUR SENIORS
Champion the issues that are critical to senior livelihoods including affordable
housing, Rx drug costs, property tax relief, and social security tax exemptions.
➢ SUPPORT GUN VIOLENCE PREVENTION
Lockdown drills are providing unnecessary anxiety to our children's lives, anxiety that they don't even fully understand. The failure of leadership that allowed the gun lobby to put the profits of gun manufacturers above the safety and well-being of our residents is a disgrace. I support common-sense gun reform so that our kids can feel safe at school, and we can all feel safe in our communities.
➢ LEAD WITH DATA AND FACTS
Rely on evidence and science to inform legislation that will support CT’s residents
and bring honesty and accountability back into governance.
I'm a mom of 2 young boys, a data analyst, and policy wonk who is committed to data-driven solutions and social justice. As someone focused on policy, I never considered entering politics until Donald Trump was elected. I was afraid for my kids' futures and it struck me like a bolt of lightning that we needed to narrow the distance between good policy and politics. I am running for State Representative because we need politicians who can lead with compassion, communicate honestly about our complex issues, and put people over profits.
What I look forward to most in being your representative is the opportunity to use my University of Chicago education and my 15 years of professional experience to:
1. Communicate with you the honest cost of something;
2. Break down complex issues into simple pieces to help you decide what’s important and
3. Help you understand where the common ground is so we can get stuff done.
