Putting Neighbors First in Annapolis
I am thrilled to serve District 19 in the Maryland House of Delegates. As a Delegate, I’m committed to putting the interests of my neighbors first. That’s why I champion bold ideas and new solutions in Annapolis.
Donald Trump’s dangerous policies threaten our quality of life in Montgomery County. For me, it’s personal. As a two-time cancer survivor, I’m one of the thousands of Marylanders in the crosshairs of the Republicans’ heartless health care agenda. As an attorney providing free legal representation to refugees, I’ve seen firsthand the fear that Trump has incited. These experiences have only strengthened my resolve to stand up for the people of our state.
Too often, politicians put large corporate interests over the needs of the people. They get wined-and-dined by industry influencers, but only show up in their communities to ask for votes every four years. They get fat campaign checks—we get higher taxes, astronomical health care costs, never-ending traffic, overcrowded schools, and a rigged economy that isn’t working for the middle class.
I’m not afraid to go big: to fight for universal affordable health care for Maryland, for a Green New Deal, for affordable housing, for full funding for our schools, and for major ethics reform to put people back in charge of their own government.
I’m endeavoring to shake up business-as-usual politics in Annapolis. We must resist the politics of fear and rediscover the politics of possibility. Our district is brimming with residents of extraordinary talent and expertise. With your help, I am bringing fresh energy and innovative ideas to tackle our biggest challenges, without taking a dime from for-profit corporations, their PACs, and their lobbyists.
