Who am I?
I served a career in the US military where I faced complex situations every day. I spent almost 8 years as a senior manager in the federal government working under reduced budgets finding creative solutions to continue supporting the warfighter with fewer resources. Last year, I transitioned to private industry where I continue to improve efficiency in government organizations. I am ready for the challenge of applying my knowledge and experience toward improving governing and governance in Prince William County.
Why am I running?
It’s time to reclaim the 13th House of Delegates District for the people of Prince William County and Manassas Park City and get back to the business of addressing the issues most important to the district's residents. For too long, Bob Marshall has waged his campaign of extreme right-wing ideology. I am focused on an agenda of working to advance responsible economic legislation and mainstream social policies in the General Assembly. I am very passionate about good government and good governance. We must demand elected officials who are willing to stand up for their constituents, not push an ideological agenda, and we must hold them accountable. It is for that reason I have decided to step up to the challenge and declare my candidacy for the 13th House of Delegates seat in 2015.
I believe in equal treatment for all. Nobody should face discrimination because of socioeconomic status, sex, sexual orientation, or any other reason.
As delegate, I will work to remove burdensome barriers to participation in the democratic process. Everyone who qualifies to vote should have the opportunity to do.
I support a woman's right to make her own decisions about her health and will work to protect that right.
I also believe in accountable government and will work with representatives of both parties to advance responsible economic legislation.
My DFA Values
I am a firm believer in the DFA Values of community, security, and liberty. My policy goals are founded on these principles.
My Campaign is People Powered!
I have reached out to former Democratic candidates in the area asking for their support. My campaign is very much a grassroots campaign - the influx of new residents is changing the regional dynamic. My campaign is one of inclusion and is reaching out to them.
