Why should voters elect you?

"We need political leaders who will respect the American people and do the hard work of getting this country back on track."

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

"Strengthening our communities so that we can feel safe, secure and confident in the exercise of our daily lives. Democrats must be a voice for seniors who have earned a strong Social Security; for working adults who seek a good job, affordable health care and a decent pension; for children who deserve a world-class education; and for the neediest among us, who need no favors, just a chance to stake their claim to the American dream."
