What is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

“Clearly, ensuring that Montgomery County receives a fair share of state funds for education is critical. As the daughter of a Montgomery County public schools high school principal, I am aware of the value and importance of a strong public school system. Maryland’s schools are No. 1 in the nation and Montgomery’s schools are highly regarded. Full funding is necessary to continue our progress. Further, we must continue to increase funding for school construction and repair. An excellent education is the cornerstone to our quality of life.”

Why should voters elect you?

“I am a strong, hardworking advocate for Maryland families, with proven leadership ability in the House of Delegates and the legal profession.”
