Dear Friends,

During this difficult time when both the physical health and economic health of our community are at risk from COVID-19, we need leaders who move beyond business and politics as usual and put people first.


That is why I entered the race for the 26th State Senate District, the seat long held by Senator Fred Risser who is retiring as the longest-serving state legislator in the nation.


As an elected official, environmental nonprofit leader and responsible small business owner rooted in the district for over 25 years, I bring a uniquely diverse experience working with stakeholders on issues that allow me to engage all points of view more effectively and build the coalitions we need to win back a Democratic majority.
