My Top 3 Priorities

  • Elect Democrats at every level of government who support our values.
  • Ensure that voters and elected officials and informed about and understand our positions and values and that the Party take a position on issues that reflects those values.
  • Continue the work I have begun in reorganizing the local party so that it is open, fair, and inclusive of all persons without regard to classifications such as gender, race, sexual orientation, economic status, etc.
