I am a Democrat running for the Iowa Senate to represent Grimes, Johnston, and Urbandale. My legislative priorities include:
- Regaining Iowa’s leadership in public education by increasing funding and treating educators like the professionals they are;
- Addressing climate change at the state level to protect our waterways and air quality; and
- Ensuring that all Iowans have access to healthcare, including mental health care, regardless of their financial status.
I opposed legislation that my opponent Brad Zaun supported in recent legislative sessions, including: changes to collective bargaining, restrictions on women’s reproductive rights, weakening gun safety laws, changes to our judicial selection process, and increasing barriers to voting. This legislation does not reflect the values or priorities of our community.
I am running so our community can have a voice in the Iowa Senate that prioritizes our strong public education system, addresses climate change, and ensures access to healthcare.
If these issues are important to you, too, I hope you will stay involved!
