My Top 3 Priorities

  • Economic Growth: We will lower taxes for our middle class, and reduce taxes and regulation for our small businesses.
  • Education: We will invest in our PreK-12 system, and make public college affordable for our working class and middle class families.
  • Veteran Services: We will ensure that our veterans receive the health and metal care services they rightfully earned, help our veterans get jobs, and decrease veteran homelessness in our state.
