Increase business opportunities:

Montgomery County is the economic engine of Maryland. As lawmakers, we need to continue to support the success of our businesses, so that every citizen, from CEOs to hourly wage-earners, can share in our prosperity. As delegate, I will: 

  • Invest in our infrastructure and expand our public transportation options
  • Provide fair business tax incentives
  • Build an environment that creates and supports opportunities for small business owners, entrepreneurs, and lower-wage earners alike
  • Explore creative opportunities for new industries to revive Maryland’s economic growth
  • Protect the funding of our premier research facilities and maintain the region’s reputation as an epicenter for scientific research and biotechnology in the Mid-Atlantic region

Invest in Our Children:

As a grandmother to two grandkids, I worry about their future. We need to elect leaders who have a vision that supports opportunities for every child, regardless of where they live and where they came from. As delegate, I will:

  • Safeguard the quality of District 16 schools
  • Equip Montgomery County to effectively deal with expanding enrollment and a changing student body
  • Support teachers and school systems to raise achievement levels for students across the state
  • Create partnership programs between schools and technological, scientific research, and art institutions
  • Preserve the state’s excellent record of services for children with disabilities and learning differences

Safeguard Our Democracy:

2016 was just the beginning. We need to take action to ensure that our elections and institutions are not threatened by foreign influence. I also believe that democracy works best when everyone participates. As delegate, I will:

  • Protect our elections from foreign influence, including investing in state-wide cyber-security initiatives and paper ballots
  • Increase voter participation with automatic voter registration for Maryland citizens

Fight for Equality:

Now, more than ever, it is imperative that we keep Maryland at the forefront of the fight for equality in our nation. In these uncertain times, all members of our communities – from families to women to immigrants to LGBTQ individuals – deserve an equal voice in our government. As delegate, I will:

  • Strengthen avenues for reporting and redressal of sexual harassment in the workplace
  • Support initiatives to close the gender wage gap
  • Provide affordable, safe and convenient childcare options for the families of Maryland
  • Work to establish programs for single parents
  • Push for improved paid family leave for Maryland businesses

Protect Our Communities:

There are a growing number of threats that need immediate attention, both in Montgomery County and around the state, from police brutality, to the drug epidemic, to gun violence. As delegate, I will:

  • Develop stronger community partnerships with law enforcement and first responders
  • Combat human trafficking and gang violence without racial and community targeting
  • Fight the opioid epidemic
  • Ensure gun control measures are coupled with local educational public safety initiatives

Stand Up to Trump’s Dangerous Agenda:

I have been at the center of the resistance because I understand the threat this administration poses to our state, our country and our future. As delegate, I will:

  • Protect our environment and natural resources, while investing in green energy initiatives
  • Protect a woman's right to quality reproductive health care
  • Build partnership programs between constituents and government officials
  • Support state innovators in scientific research and investment in the arts
