WOMEN’S RIGHTS

I support equal pay for equal work, paid maternity leave and individual women’s control over our own health care. Women, together with their families, need to be trusted to decide what is best for them.

LAW ENFORCEMENT and DRUG POLICY

The so-called “war on drugs” is a failure. Evidence shows that treating substance addiction as a health issue rather than a criminal matter is the effective path towards solving these problems.

ECONOMICS

I support a livable wage for all workers. We are currently experiencing the largest wealth gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’ in American history. This is untenable.

HEALTHCARE

I support a Medicare For All program that provides healthcare for all citizens.

EDUCATION

I support a strong and well-funded public education system. We cannot continually take money away from our schools and expect to have a well-educated and productive society.

Should We Be Encouraging Sprawl In Greene County?

I live in Sugarcreek Township. Our tagline is “An Open Space Community.” Until it isn’t. In a recent conversation with the township administrator, I said to him, if I closed my eyes for 20 years, what would I see here when I opened them again.  He said I’d see complete development. No more of those…
