I will advocate for our children and families. I support the continued development of high-quality early childhood programs and vibrant public schools, free community college, and investing in our State university system and workforce development programs.
I will lead initiatives that protect our land, air and waterways for residents today as well as future generations including investments in green technologies and the prohibition of harmful environmental practices.
I will work to enact legislation that unlocks the potential of all communities paying special attention to equity in education, comprehensive community-based approaches to public safety, and programs that reduce health disparities.
I will support legislation that enhances programs and policies to fight the stigma of mental health and assist those needing services, lend my voice to issue regarding drug addiction and opioid treatment programs, and continue to fight for affordable healthcare including pushing to cap out-of-pocket prescription drug costs.
business and job growth
I will work with business leaders to create a more business friendly climate in our state, support our workforce in meeting the challenges of a changing economy, and invest in attracting advanced manufacturing and the development of the innovation ecosystem.
I will support relief programs for business and municipalities as all sectors of the economy slowly emerge from the shutdown and work to ensure that funding is used appropriately to pay for the additional resources required to safely manage during the pandemic and its aftermath.
