KEY ISSUES

Education: Supports increased funding for education at all levels, including kindergarten and early childhood development. “Education is always an investment, never an expense.” – Governor Terry McAuliffe

Economic Development and Growth: Pro-growth as long as infrastructure (roads, schools and healthcare) is maintained to support that growth. Interested in diversifying private sector economy by focusing on biotech and health care innovation. Against legislation by the right wing that keeps women unable to compete for well paying jobs.

Transportation and Infrastructure: Understands that transportation is a huge issue in Norther Virginia, but opposes adding tolls to I-66 inside the Beltway. Instead she is working for efficient use of transportation funds and for Northern Virginia to get its fair share.

Protecting Women’s Rights: Equal Pay for Equal Work! Women need access and agency in all major decisions regarding healthcare, transportation and childcare, so that they can be providers for their families.

Protecting our Communities and our Children: Supports enhanced background checks and closing the gun show loophole, which allows people to purchase guns without a background check.
