My Priorities

While the majority party continues passing tax increases and punitive policies that make daily life more expensive, my colleagues and I are advocating for tax relief and policies to help alleviate financial burdens for struggling families, students, small business owners, and the most vulnerable.

Strengthening communities by making public safety a priority

Empowering parents by providing transparency and flexibility to help their children succeed

I believe transparency is crucial to ensuring trust in our K-12 education system. Parents deserve a say in their children’s education and have a right to know what is being taught in the classroom. They also deserve the financial and educational flexibility necessary for school choice to become a reality.
