Why should voters elect you?

"I have a plan to improve the 26th District, I am a team player, yet a fighter, and I will fight and work hard."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"Education, for the simple fact that in 2009 a large number of our students will not receive diplomas, and no safety net has been put into place. With National Harbor coming to the 26th District and students not graduating, crime will increase. There will not be good job opportunities at National Harbor for students who do not graduate from high school, resulting in increased crime."
