My work and educational experience have prepared me to take on the role of state representative. I am a passionate and patient leader, ready to serve the people in my district and the state.
My dedication for creating a better Kansas is unswerving. I am able to maintain focus on the most pressing issues, and develop practical solutions to those problems all while presenting a strong assertive argument for Kansans.
I value transparency in government, and I conduct all my business with integrity and authenticity. I welcome input from everyone in the 47th. I don't play partisanship politics.
Effective leaders are concerned about the well-being of others. Being insightful and open-minded positions me to represent the voters Dist 47, not corporate interests.
The family is the pillar of our society. We value our children and relatives more than anything else. In today's society, there is no reason Kansans should have to choose between food, a prescription, or an education. The traditional family, families with grandparents as primary caregivers, same sex parents along with many other combinations make up families in Kansas. By supporting legislation that benefits all Kansas families, I'll help strengthen that important pillar in our society.
More than ever, Kansans worry about losing healthcare. My priority is working toward expansion of Medicaid for all those in need of insurance and protecting the integrity of the VA from privatization.
A quality education is the foundation for a successful, enjoyable life. I'll work hard to make certain our schools are properly funded and allocating funds responsibly.
Kansans have endured low wages for far too long. It's time for the legislature to put into place a law that provides all our working residents with a livable minimum and prevailing wage,
Environmental protection and renewable energy makes sense from a business perspective as well. It is time Kansas invest in Bio-fuel for it's own farmers. Farmers should have as many options to sell their product for a profit as possible.
