DIRECT REPRESENTATION

My whole campaign is based on providing the representation of District 10 by the constituents of District 10. It's not about voting with the party line it's about getting constituents what they need. I hope to hear from you about what is happening in our district and what you need done to make it better. Tell me here.

TRANSPARENCY

I want to provide a new level of transparency to local government. A well-informed public is the key to a healthy democracy, so I plan to be in frequent contact with the press, and my constituents, to ensure all information is available about the goings on in local government.
