Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Elect Democrats to local, county and state levels as well as the federal level.
  • I'd like to develop ways to teach members to do fundraisers for our democratic candidates we are supporting, as well as mentoring people who are ready to run for office like hosting seminars.
  • Supporting our Democratic leaders by promoting their legislations and making sure that our local clubs will support.
