Why should voters elect you?

"I am about problem-solving, not politics. I want to represent you. I want to be YOUR voice in Annapolis."

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

"Strong primary education has helped make our district a prosperous community and leader in the technological innovations of tomorrow. We must keep our commitment to public schools to make sure we stay ahead of the curve. The state must recommit itself to serious school construction, starting with the schools most in need of permanent, not portable, space. If our children have to learn in crowded trailers instead of open, accessible classrooms, we will lose our competitive edge. The State Interagency Committee on School Construction recommended $250 million a year for public school renovation and construction, and I support those findings."
