1) Define what “success” would look like if you are elected to serve your district.
To have vibrant inter-active communities being able to promote and enjoy a healthy and sustainable lifestyle that provides clean water, secure housing, safe child care and an accessible and valuable education for its citizens.

2) Characterize your view on public access to governmental business.
Individually the different offices of government are maintained by capable and professional people. Unfortunately, oftentimes there is little communication between the offices of government and these offices becoming silos unto themselves, making it difficult for the average citizen to collect the information they need in an efficient and timely manner.
