Why should voters elect you?

"I have a strong desire to serve the public. Having grown up in Howard County, I will always fight for what's important to its people."

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

"The most urgent problem facing my jurisdiction is that many of our public servants, including police officers, firefighters and teachers, are all severely underpaid. Many of the workers in these groups cannot even afford to live in the same communities that they are teaching in and protecting. This must change, and I will fight for positive change on this issue if I am elected to the House of Delegates. More state money should be used to not only help raise their salaries, but to provide a monthly housing allowance to these workers for their first three years of their careers."
