1) Define what “success” would look like if you are elected to serve your district.
Success to me would be to find Democrats keeping the majority of the Senate and the Blaine House. I believe that Senate District 16 would benefit greater if represented by someone in the majority party. This may also serve to stop the attack on women’s reproductive rights and chill the movement on restricting contraception availability, which I feel most people support.

2) Characterize your view on public access to governmental business.
I believe government works best “in the sunshine.”
