Why I'm Running


Government should work for its citizens.

I know from my own life that government is a force for good—it can help, empower, and save people’s lives. It did for me. From Montgomery County Public Schools to Medicaid, if it were not for good government policies and programs, I would not be here today. I have experienced periods of homelessness, struggled with addiction, and coped with devastating health issues and learning disabilities, but with the support of family, friends, community groups, and yes, the government, I have been able to live a fulfilled and productive life. As Delegate, this will be the lens through which I see every policy: will it make people’s lives better?
