I support the second amendment. I support local schools studying and addressing their specific needs and then crafting a solution that fits those needs.
13. What specific legislation will you work to enact?
I am specifically interested in legislation to address the needs and rights of senior citizens as they age and become more dependent on others for personal and financial care, most importantly in guardianship proceedings where the adult ward faces a significant loss of rights.

As an education major and lifelong volunteer teacher, I’m listening to teachers, administrators, parents and people throughout the district regarding their thoughts on how we can continue to improve our public schools.
