Real People for the People
Vote November 3, 2020
With re-election, I will continue to give women a strong voice in the State House, remove the barriers to quality healthcare faced by our elderly and most vulnerable, and support a strong community economy with business growth, sustainable housing, and employment opportunities.
I will also provide transparency between citizens and the South Carolina state government. I am committed to increasing awareness and engagement about the issues that face our community. We deserve to live healthy, affordable, enjoyable lives and our communities should be a place that helps us thrive.
