As a lifelong resident of Northwest Arkansas, I am deeply familiar with the issues we face and the need for a bold progressive voice in state government. Thanks to my years of experience serving the people of this area and getting results, I'm ready to hit the ground running on DAY ONE.
As a Fayetteville City Councilmember and Vice Mayor, I have a record of Proven Progressive Leadership that includes protecting the environment, fighting for equality, and modernizing our infrastructure. As a former healthcare executive, I visited all 75 counties in Arkansas as part of a program to get vaccines to every child in the state. As a graduate of the U of A and local public schools, I understand the importance of protecting public education. I also understand the value of listening to the people of this district and always making myself available and responsive to your concerns. I continually reach out to friends, neighbors, business owners, activists and other members of the community to learn what's important to you, and to let it shape my own approach to policy.
This campaign is all about you, THE PEOPLE. I'm ready to get to work and make my Experience Win for YOU, Fayetteville, as your next State Rep for District 86!
