Congressional District 30 has one of the highest poverty rates in the country. 38% in 2012.  The underlying factors that lead to this disparity are:  a less educated workforce, invisible living wage, lack of decent affordable housing and single family homes both women and men.  I will work hard to eliminate these prohibitions that contribute to fewer people achieving the American Dream.

Every American deserves quality and affordable healthcare.  I will work to improve not repeal the Affordable Care Act, known as “Obama Care”.   I will also work for the preservation of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

I will address these issues with a loud voice and energy to bring our district into the 21st Century.
