Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe that public service requires an inclusive perspective because the idea of Community transcends all cultures, generations, and walks of life. That's why I'm proud to be endorsed as an Equality Candidate by the Stonewall Democratic Club.

Growing up in a Republican household with traditional values - my father's a Navy veteran and my mother worked to make ends meet - I understand the struggles of working-class families. I was taught to lead by example, the importance of character, and that teamwork makes us stronger.
