Biographical
General (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)

Some Americans believe our government is broken, but I still believe in "we the people". Laws are created by "people" who determine how we will live. This is a task that I do not take lightly. More women are needed in the legislature because I believe we need a fair, balanced representation for women. Women redefine politics. We care about public policy and creating a legislative system that is fair and equal for all. I understand that there will always be disagreement when creating policies, however, when you disagree, there is a level of agreement if you just keep listening and just keep talking. I strongly believe it is about public service and always doing the right thing. I will defend our public schools because I believe that our society,

Reasons & Objectives
Why I Am Running for Public Office

Approximately 85% of Americans believe our government is broken, but I still believe in "we the people". Laws are created by "people" who determine how we will live. This is a task that I do not take lightly. More women are needed in the legislature, and I have answered the call because I believe we need a fair, balanced representation for women in the legislature. Women redefine politics. We care about public policy and creating a legislative system that is fair and equal for all. I understand that there will always be disagreement when creating policies, however, when you disagree, there is a level of agreement if you just keep listening and just keep talking. I strongly believe it is about public service and always doing the right thing.

Goals If Elected

I believe that our society, economy and communities are based and built by the quality of our public education system. The first thing I want to accomplish is to fairly and equally educate our children in the Chester-Upland school district and support our public schools. I will do this by introducing and supporting legislation for tax reform in Pennsylvania to equally fund our public schools.

Achievements If Elected

In the eyes of voters elected officials do and say all they can to get elected, and when elected all of their promises and "I wills" are gone and the people are forgotten. I will show the voters that it will not be business-as-usual in Harrisburg, but I will do what they have elected me to do and that is helping to create a legislative system that is fair and equal for all, and I will not take the task lightly. I will introduce, support and defend any legislation that makes good common sense. I want to achieve the goal of bringing some level of functionality to our legislative process by encouraging my fellow legislators to do the same.

Areas to Concentrate On

I strongly believe it is about public service and always doing the right thing for all. I do not believe in the "one solution fits all" theory. Although I do feel education must be a priority and I will concentrate on educational programs that assist high school graduates to prepare for college, vocational schools and the job market. I will also concentrate on womens issues and I will defend the rights of women for fair and equal pay, fair and equal healthcare, and fair and a equal economy.

On Entering Public Service

I believe in "we the people". Laws are created by "people" who determine how we will live. This is a task that I do not take lightly. I will never make a promise that I cannot or do not intend to keep. Whatever falls within my power to accomplish, I will do. I will do what the voters have elected me to do and that is helping to create a legislative system that is fair and equal for all. I will keep with the oath of office which says: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support, obey and defend the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of this Commonwealth, and that I will discharge the duties of my office with fidelity"
