Why should you be elected
Continue the work I began during my first term because our Republican-controlled state government continues to fail working families, women, and our most precious resource: our children.

I’m running because I believe that in order to build a brighter future for our kids we must renew our commitment to public education at every level, attract high tech jobs, repair the crumbling infrastructure that handicaps the communities in the 58th District, and to ensure that the extraction of our state’s massive energy resources is done safely and generates good jobs for Ohioans—not just huge profits for billion-dollar out-of-state energy companies.

I am running to ensure that women’s voices are not drowned out by extremists when decisions are made about our health. I am running because I share the values that define the people of this district: respect for family, a belief in the value of hard work, and a tireless drive to make the world a better place for our kids and grandkids.

I am running because I believe public service is a noble and honorable calling.

I am running to serve the people of the 58th District because I believe I can make a real, positive difference in their lives and the lives of all Ohioans. And I am running to make Ohio a better place to live, work, and raise a family.

Top three priorities
1) Strengthen public education at all levels, including working to modify, and ideally erase the so-called “Youngstown Plan” that threatens the very existence of the Youngstown Public Schools.
2) Ensure that local governments have the resources needed to provide essential services;
3) Retain and attract good-paying jobs in the information technology, advanced and traditional manufacturing, and energy sectors.
