ISSUES


Education
In January of 2013, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) released a new report entitled, What Are the Social Benefits of Education?, as a new brief in its Education Indicators in Focus series. In this brief, the authors find that “…the evidence makes already the case for education policies to complement social policies aimed at tackling health, crime and social cohesion. It would be important to take into account educational approaches to social challenges when evaluating cost-effective policy levers.” If elected, working on initiatives that promote quality of education for ALL American children will be a top priority of mine. Without increasing a country of well-educated individuals, we will continue to be forced to focus our energies and funding on fighting poverty, unemployment, and a society feeling hopeless and disenfranchised.

Neighbors
Neighbors need to work together. As your representative, I pledge to work with you to ensure that your interests and concerns are represented in Washington.

Abortion
Oftentimes we hear the other side of the aisle tell us they believe in smaller and less intrusive government. They tell us we need a government that is off our backs and out of the way. Yet, the very same officials that shout these ideologies turn around and try to tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body based on their own personal beliefs. I cannot think of a way in which government is more involved in your life than if they are telling you what to do with it.
While I or any other congressperson may not personally choose the route of abortion, I also know that it is never my authority to dictate to women based on my personal beliefs. Decades ago the supreme court ruled that women have the right, under the fourteenth amendment, to have access to safe and legal abortions. There is no reason to begin to infringe upon on reduce this right as we know it today.
Our number one interest in regard to abortion is to first protect women’s health and their right to choose. I believe the government should stay out of what any woman may choose to do. Instead of limiting access to abortions and forcing women into difficult, sometimes life threatening decisions, we need to ensure the access to abortion is expansive and safe.
I also respect that everyone has his or her own moral, sometimes religious views on the issue and these opinions are allowed and accepted so long as they do not actively attempt to deter women from their right to choose. I will fight every day to make sure no one politician’s objection to abortion forces a woman into a dangerous and unsafe situation.

Climate Change
I am concerned, like so many of you, about the climate change effects on the earth. I applaud the action plan created at the Paris climate conference in December, and we must take steps in this country to promote new initiatives for cutting emissions and advancing low-carbon technologies.
Immigration Reform
I stand with those who support immigration reform that will address the legal status of the 11 million undocumented people in our country, secure the border, and protect undocumented workers from labor exploitation.
