WHY AM I RUNNING? I believe HD19 voters deserve better representation than an initially-appointed incumbent who is out-of-touch by repeatedly voting against their will and in-sync with special interests. I run to represent the ordinary people and working families ("the little guys"), NOT the elite insiders and out-of-state corporations. My top priority is to best represent and serve YOU, the constituents, to feel your pain and cheer your gain. I pledge not to take personal gifts from lobbyists and contributions from out-of-state corporations. I work for you!
