If elected or re-elected, please describe legislation you expect to sponsor or co-sponsor.
I expect to sponsor education, woman’s health, affordable housing, quality and affordable healthcare,
maintaining currant cosmetology licensing laws.
What are the most important concerns you’ve heard from Manchester residents and how can you address those concerns if elected or re-elected?
I think at this point, the biggest issue is housing costs. We’ve seen rental costs sky rocket and the housing market hasn’t cooled down with the rise of interest rates. This puts a lot of people in a hard spot.
New Hampshire legislators are citizen legislators and being a legislator is a significant time commitment. How much time per week can you spend on legislative duties while the Senate/House is in session?

How do you feel the current divisive political climate in the United States will impact the New Hampshire General Court over the next two years and how would you navigate that divisiveness in your duties?
