I am running for office because I believe that my current representatives are not voting my values and they refuse to be accountable. The voters of LD16 deserve to be represented. I am personally tired of having to vote for the lesser of two evils. I am ready to join the common sense Republican majority to protect Empowerment Scholarship Account, to demand our Governor demands the Federal Government secure our southern border and demand election integrity in our State.
