* I Will Work to Reduce Crime.

The highest purpose of our police is to secure the life and property for members of our community. Like the rest of us, police must obey the law and be held accountable when they don’t. At the same time, police must be able to enforce the law confident they have our support. We need to adequately fund, train, and honor the vast majority of police who serve with honor and heroism.

* I Will Work to Reduce Homelessness.

Like you, I want to help and show compassion to people struggling to survive. Widespread homelessness and tents on the street are not the answer. Both impact health and safety, for the person who has no place stay and in our neighborhoods. We need to create public/private partnerships, work with our churches, communities, and networks of shelters and services to make alternatives to homelessness safer and more accessible. Facilitating job creation, and supporting our employers, will also reduce homelessness.

* I Will Work to Empower Parents.

Schools and teachers are vitally important, but parents should be the primary decision makers in their childrens’ education. School curriculum, teaching methods, board policies, and other such things must be fully transparent and easily accessible to parents. I will work to improve education outcomes and help our children still recovering from the effects of the pandemic. Parents of limited means, working, and middle-class parents should have the same choices that higher income parents have.

Caring, Experience, Action
