Invest in Education
Every student in North Carolina must be provided with an equitable, sound, and basic education. It’s time to fund our public education system for students from early childhood education to K-12. 
The work has been done and the studies have been completed which lay out a plan to fully fund our public education system.

Funding our schools will:
  • Give students the tools and resources they need to succeed
  • Keep and attract well-qualified teachers in the schools
  • Provide health care resources in each school
It’s time to invest properly in our children’s future.
Protect and Preserve our Environment
Climate change is real, and it’s impacting our area.  We must bring innovative solutions to ensure our air and water quality is safe today, and into the future. 
The rapid growth in Southern Wake County is impacting our natural resources, and impacting the quality of our water and air.

To address real climate issues, we need to support:
  • Programs that encourage clean energy using wind and sun as alternatives to consuming more fossil-fuels
  • Encourage new development to incorporate more EV Charging stations in residential and commercial projects
Let’s protect our environment in a proactive way.
Accessible and Affordable Healthcare
Access to basic healthcare for all, should be a priority for our state. 
This means not only expanding Medicaid in NC, but also funding health facilities to all corners of our state, and reduce the cost of services and prescriptions.

Focus on healthcare priorities so that:
  • Close the current coverage gap for those who are not eligible for Medicaid
  • Help small businesses with programs for them to have cost-effective health insurance plans for their employees
  • Work with prescription drug companies to lower the costs of drug prices
  • Making decisions about ones health should between the patient and their doctor alone. Elected officials should not be inserted into the decision. I believe reproductive rights must be fully accessible, and a vital part of our healthcare system.
Community Safety
At the end of the day, people want to feel safe where they live, work, learn and play.   
The term ‘safe community’ should mean safe for all.  We are at a point where we need to acknowledge that real solutions need to be implemented and address intimidation tactics head-on.

Having a safe community starts with:
  • Responsible gun ownership.  I fully support the 2nd Amendment and the right to have a gun.  In our community, we need to bring forth common sense responsible gun safety measures that protect our citizens and promote public safely.
  • Support efforts to address social justice and equality gaps so that all people are protected as stated in our founding principles.  That includes supporting the ERA resolution, LGBTQ+ rights, reproductive rights, and denouncing all forms of racism.
Fair Elections & Voting Rights
Democracy works when every eligible voter can have their voices heard in free and fair elections. 
Our maps for our district were recently redrawn because of issues with gerrymandering.

Now that the map is set, it’s time to:
  • Ensure voters are educated on the ways they can vote in upcoming elections

  • Protect voters from being intimidated at the polls
  • Stop suppression initiatives that disproportionately target people of color, students, the elderly, LGBTQ+ community and people with disabilities.
