Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I'm a progressive democrat who believes in justice and equality for all. I supported marriage equality when it was not popular as well spoke out on issues impacting our environment from fracking in communities of color to the impact of citizens living under the flight path I have been there to ask the tough questions. I believe in a women's right to choose what happens with her body and also believe she deserves equal pay for equal work. I'm currently fighting for $15 federal minimum wage because I believe its what's needed to pull the millions of families working full-time out of poverty. I support universal healthcare and child care. Our children deserve a headstart if they are to compete in a global economy. I also support free public college education. Every young person should not have to leave college saddled with a life time of debt nor should they have to choose a different path becasue they cannot afford a college education in our state. We would have more doctors, nurses, engineers and STEM related careers when equal access to quality education comes to fruition.
