Statement: It's time for an honest conversation about tax reform! I survived a childhood of poverty because of courageous case workers and an education system that rewarded my hard work and determination. Now, critical programs aimed at protecting vulnerable families, schools, the environment, and senior citizens are at risk! We need a fair tax system to fund the things we care deeply about.
Representative Brendan Williams, the Federation of State Employees, State Labor Council, teachers, firefighters, and over fifty community leaders have endorsed my campaign; I now need your vote to be your advocate in the legislature. Thank you!
