I am passionate about democracy and how ordinary citizens must engage in self-governing to ensure we remain free to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I believe my experience as a collaborative, compassionate, and confident leader can serve our community. This district and the state of Ohio are faced with many challenges concerning education, stagnant wages, and the opioid crisis. People need a representative that will not only listen to their concerns, but internalize and own the issues alongside concerned families and neighbors. I am committed to working tirelessly for the people of Mason, Lebanon, and Middletown to give a voice to the voiceless in Columbus where our concerns will be heard.
