The Capital Gazette asked all candidates to explain why they are running for office.  Please see my response:


Opportunity for Everyone to Reach Their Full Potential


Thank you for your interest in my campaign for District 33 Maryland State Delegate.  

We are so fortunate to live in Maryland in an area where people care deeply and are fully committed to creating a better future for their families, neighbors and community.  I am excited at the prospect of being your voice in the Maryland General Assembly and working for you to make Maryland even better than it is now.   

I decided to run for state delegate because it became clear to me that my values are not being represented by the current delegation. I will fight for our natural environment, world class public education, transportation and infrastructure improvements, women’s healthcare, increased safety in our schools and communities, policies that will result in a strong economy with good paying jobs for our families and for creating the foundation and framework so that everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential.  Based on the voting record of all three of the incumbent delegates, my priorities are starkly different than theirs. If you’re values align more closely with mine I ask that you support my candidacy by sharing my message and voting for me on November 6thand, if possible, sharing your time, talent and treasure with the campaign.  

Throughout my career in business, as a community volunteer and as a parent I have found that by bringing people together with varied expertise, backgrounds and experiences we identify the best and most sustainable solutions.  I will bring this way of doing business to the State House as I collaborate and build consensus to solve problems.  If elected I will be a full-time legislator and will be on the job for my constituents not only during the 90-day session but for all 12 months of the year.  

I look forward to talking with you about your concerns and your thoughts on how we can continue to move Maryland and District 33 forward. I hope to meet you when I’m in your neighborhood over the next few months but I also invite you to reach out to me directly with your questions and ideas.  

Maryland is truly a land of plenty and we must always seek opportunity, health, prosperity and justice for ourselves and our neighbors.
