"As an educator, I know the challenges that educators face every day. Schools need increased funding, so educators can teach and students can learn. Teachers should not be teaching to a test and teacher’s compensation shouldn’t be tied to how well the students do on it. Our state house needs educators in the legislature to champion the needs of all students.
Infrastructure shapes the way our communities function. Without working infrastructure, our people cannot get to their jobs, the water does not run, the sewers backup, and electricity goes out. Businesses will not come into a community with crumbling infrastructure. Crops cannot be planted or transported. Outdated infrastructure is a weakness, a vulnerability, and it can potentially be a public health threat.
Economic Development leads the way to higher wages, better jobs, and a flourishing economy. Our community will economically thrive when we educate our people, invest in infrastructure, and support small businesses in our community. I would do this by investing in people who invest in the community and support our small businesses with innovative programs.
I am your senate district 28 champion. I will champion education, infrastructure, and economic development. I look forward to meeting with the constituents of senate district 28 and earning your vote!"
